Video: Range Time with the Italian M38 Carcano Rifle

People often forget about the Italian M38 Carcano Rifle in the world of military surplus rifles. 

This little odd-caliber rifle still proves to be a good shooter.

Mark3smle gets range time with a classic Italian M38 Carcano Rifle and tells us all about them in this informative video:

When Italy needed a heavier caliber with lighter recoil after World War I, the 7.35x51mm cartridge came to be.

Lightweight and shorter than many military rifles of that time, the M38 Carcano Rifle proved quite handy. It was made for real combat distances, as well as distances over 1,000 yards.

Many thanks to our friend YouTuber mark3smle for testing out this great, historical military relic.
