Here's a 6.5 MM Italian Carcano. You can see the obvious similarities. "Bubba" in this context is a not very talented self taught gunsmith. I think your rifle looks pretty good.What's a Bubba edition? Lol. I don't even know where to begin on caliber? It's not stamped anywhere.
“Bubba edition“ refers rifles, usually old military, modified to better suit the users purpose. Often with somewhat disappointing results. From what I saw yours wasn’t done by Bubba in the garage with a file, some sand paper and a pair of pliers. Looks well done.What's a Bubba edition? Lol. I don't even know where to begin on caliber?

Some people see any modifications to old military rifles as an assault on the weapons historical value, well done or not. I agree his appears well done and I told him so. It’s a little Sunday morning humor, nothing more nothing less.I don't see how you can call that a Bubba edition. It looks very well made.
I'm going to take that back. The barrel looks to long to be a 38, they only had a 20 1/2" barrel. The 91/41 has a 27" barrel. The bolt handle could've been bent when it was sporterized.With the bent bolt, I'm leaning towards 38.
It's either been cut or rebarreled. You can add the cost of a new barrel to a restoration. Personally I like sporterized rifles better than military configured ones. I've had a few butchered myself but I had the work done for me by qualified gunsmiths.Maybe it's been rebarreled.
