Default Very confused.

I was on guns looking for a deal and I saw a carcono 1939 short rifle that cost over 40 grand. The description didn't give a reason. What's up with that?

Got a cheap scope, and the initials L H O carved in the stock?

Ha Nice. Although I'm pretty sure that rifle never killed anyone. LOL

I've never owned a carcano and probably never will. Perhaps if they drop the price to under 35 thousand I might consider getting one.

They're touting it as one of Lee Harvey Oswald's guns.

My wife who was not very informed concerning military rifles once bought me an Italian Carcano which I found needed an extra thing inside to hold the cartridges. I looked for and finally found some ammo and fired it a few times and sold it. My thoughts were that the Carcano was a $60 rifle and perhaps not worth even that.

L.H.O. likely bought one because it was cheap. There are other cheap rifles around, thinking of the Mosin, but that rifle makes a Carcano look like a BB gun in comparison considering power & hitting where aimed !

IMO a $10 rifle that sells for $100 in my area. Oswald was a very good marksman or was just lucky because I have owned several and neither were very accurate.
