Humm? Lee Harvey bought his Italian Mil-Surp for $18 bucks with a 3/4" weaver scope. Klien's of Chicago sold these by the tons in the 1950s and early 1960s. The rifles were of very poor quality and the little scopes were like looking at the world thru a coke bottle. I don't know who shot JFK but he damn sure was not using an Italian carbine.

Well, while it takes me about 3 minutes to cycle,

much less aim and shoot, two rounds through my

Carcano, I'm sure the Warren Commission knew exactly

what it was talking about, and we should trust our

government, because they would never lie to us.

I had one back in my teens. It was pleasant to shoot and very accurate with Norma factory loads. Wish I still had it.
I don't know if Oswald killed Kennedy or not, but I saw a documentary once on the military channel where a guy was able to get off 3 shots very accurately and very quickly with a 6.5 Carcano.

I've got a 91/24 Carcano. Got it $150 at a gunshow. It can't shoot worth a crap, but it's a piece of history none the less. What's really cool is that it was made in 1924 and it has an early serial #. It also has what appears to be tally marks on the right side of the stock.

Ha those tally marks must be from how many times the soldier missed. Haha just kidding. I respect the Carcano and I'm hoping to get one that isn't sporterized or beat beyond use, but they're hard to find in my area.

The stock on my Carcano looks like it was dragged

from the Turkish border to Moscow behind a

German tank during Operation Barbarossa.

Seriously, how does a rifle entrusted to an

infantry soldier, which he's caring for to fight a

war and protect his life, get so banged up,

dirty, and greasy?
