A truly historic weapon with its most famous victim American President John F. Kennedy
Carcano is a common name for a series of Italian bolt-action, magazine-fed, firearms rifles and carbines.
Introduced in 1891, with a berth for the rimless cartridge 6.5×52mm Carcano round (Cartuccia Modello 1895).
The weapon was designed by the Italian Salvatore Carcano in the Turin weapon arsenal in 1890.
A Carcano is a truly historic weapon. In addition to the Italians, the Germans also made extensive use of this weapon. It was the most used weapon system of the Deutsche Volkssturm in late 1944-1945. During the civil war in Libya (2011), weapons again appeared in the hands of rebels. But the most famous victim of this weapon is American President John F. Kennedy, who was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald and his Carcano.
