    Italians In East Africa

    Great documentary and the ironic part is in East Africa you can still find Italian [email protected] era military small arms still in circulation in pristine condition along with German and British small arms.

    Carcano M38 & others

    They are pretty easy to field strip and clean kind of like the Kalashnikov of bolt action rifles.

    Carcano M38 & others

    I have one that I traded a shotgun for although it doesn't have a bayonet it is in mint condition and shoots great the only trouble I have is finding ammunition for it.
