Default Carcano 91/24

I recently bought a carcano 91/24(pretty sure) for $150 at a gunshow. From what I can tell it was made at Terni in 1924, it's chambered in 6.5x52, and probably saw some service considering its condition. If anyone can tell me more about this rifle please do. I'll post some pics below.
