ARTV Video: Italian Carcano Bolt-Action Rifle

The Italian Carcano 6.5 mm bolt-action rifle was similar to those being adopted by various militaries of the western world during its 1891 adoption into the Italian military, serving Italy through both World Wars. Even though it is considered one of the fast military bolt-action rifles to operate, the firearm never gained a lot of respect and has yet to garner a significant following by collectors, much of which is associated with the caliber. The rifle is, however, associated with one of the most historic events of the 20th century, occurring in November 1963.
