Carcano M38, the Lee Harvey Oswald rifle.

Recommended Comments


I've owned one of these, in the past (although it was in 7.35mm caliber).  It was quite accurate, had one of the fastest bolt-actions I've ever encountered.  Oswald was a Marine sharpshooter, and was certainly capable of killing a moving target.  Yes, I believe it was a lone gunman that killed the President in Dallas, so long ago (I was a high school freshman, at the time).  At the time of the assassination, you could buy a Carcano from comic-book ads for $15.


Pronunciation:  Car-CAH-noh  (rolling the tongue on the first syllable!)
