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.

It might be a BB gun, but it is a 40,000 dollar BB gun :D.
