  Carcano Homepage: Italian Military Rifles and Carbines
This set of WWW pages is dedicated to the Carcano, the main Italian military longarms system from its initial design in 1891 (the ministerial adoption followed in 1892) to the end of World War II and and even longer.
The project has been undertaken in order to provide a concentrated online reference to the Carcano, and to dispell a lot of erroneous and non-fact-based hearsay, which has for too long a time confused the historical perception and evaluation of these rifles and carbines.

 Moto Guzzi V8
Carcano ruled out a four; Moto Guzzi already had an old in-line shaft-driven four that couldn’t match the transverse fours of Gilera and MV.
Lomas knew Carcano had no four cylinder enthusiasm: "He said that to beat the fours, there was no use building a four, as even after the development was completed, the new four would only be on a par with the opposition." And a transverse six, Carcano feared, would prove too wide and weighty.
Carcano continued to refine the eight, and the engine responded by producing more and more power.

 Assassination John F. Kennedy
The best evidence that identifies the ownership of the murder weapon is the handwriting of the person who ordered the rifle under the name "A. Hidell" from a mail order house in Chicago in March 1963 and rented the post office box in Dallas to which it was shipped.
The best evidence of Oswald's actual possession of the Mannlicher- Carcano, however, is the much disputed photographs of Oswald holding the rifle in his hand that Marina Oswald said she took on Sunday, March 31, 1963 in the backyard of their house in Dallas.
Oswald claimed after his arrest that the photograph had been faked by superimposing his head on the rifleman's body but this theory is contradicted by three pieces of evidence established by the House Select Committee.

I don't know quite where the Carcano got a reputation as using an underpowered cartridge or having a weak action.
The Carcano action is not a bad action.
Quite a few were rebarrelled for German 7.9 toward the end of the war, and held together OK, though obviously the pressures exceeded the standard pressure for the action.

 Carcano critique Guns Magazine - Find Articles
I'm the owner of three Carcano carbines (a M38 and 2 M91s) and I once had a long rifle version.
But back when I was an outdoors enthusiast on a tight budget, I bought one for $15 and carried it on some hiking and canoe trips; and I can tell you that the truth is somewhere between the traditional condemnation of this weapon and the more current praise.
The Carcano is a great lightweight carry gun and although it's not a "bad" rifle it is still, in comparison, the "worst" battle rifle of World Wars I and II.

It was tragic for the Kennedys, the country, firearm owners and collectors (JFK's death lead to the Gun Control Act of 1968), and all shapes and models of the Italian Carcano.
In fact, the Carcano was the first 6.5mm military rifle ever adopted and featured a unique, gain twist barrel.
The important point to remember about the Carcano's 6.5mm bore size is that it is not your standard 6.5mm.264" inch bore.
