Anyone know what the 51 stamped on the underside of the barrel of my 91/38 Carcano is?

Hey guys, i just purchased a 6.5 Beretta Gardone and was looking for specific information about my rifle, in particular the very short threaded barrel. Is this original to the gun or has someone cut it down and threaded it? I will have my tax stamp soon so adding a can is an intriguing possibility. I have attached some pictures for reference. Thanks for any and all info-

Great bit of info and as for the 'steel maker code/mark' I'll be checking that out on the few I own, thanks.
Question concerning the 'gain twist'. Any reason why the original 6.5's were eventually made with the conventional rifling?

I'd say the threading was done post import. I missed the steel vendor code - it's an odd one? Ren

Most of those are armorer's marks showing a particular operation had been completed. Ren
