First, It is considered more polite to introduce yourself by telling us a little about yourself instead of instantly asking for help identifying or appraising a firearm!

Welcome to Gun & Game!
Next, you need to show us pictures, several clear pictures showing any markings.

Welcome to Gun and Game! It sounds like K75RT has led you in the right direction. It sounds like a drilling. There were a number of multi caliber/gauge models.

If you have any more questions, don't be shy about asking.

Welcome to the fun!

Lots of food folks here, with tons of knowledge!

Your drilling is not chambered in a common caliber, IIRC. The 38-55 is not common in the European market. I'd probably have a chamber cast made and verify unless it is clearly marked 38-55. I mentio. This because there are cartridges close to American calibers but not quite the same.

JMHO.

With experience, comes knowledge, and G&G has a wealth of shooting experience, and loads of knowledge can't help but be far behind.

G&G also has a reputation for being among the friendliest forums in the gun community.... keep it that way. :usa2:
