rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6<br>
cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -<br>
plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and<br>
then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from<br>
top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered<br>
during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when<br>
Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine<br>
and clip were retained.</span></b></p>
<p><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none"><b>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out<br>
when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were<br>
made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not<br>
available. Some were even homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon<br>
when found. It was empty and a round was found in the chamber. The<br>
clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been<br>
emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo.<font color="#FF0000">
Probably<br>
because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian<br>
ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the<br>
world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.</font></b></span></p>

------------------------------<br>
There are various photographs of one of the police detectives carrying<br>
the rifle out the front door of the book building.&nbsp; From several<br>
views, one can see an empty clip working its way down out of the clip<br>
exit.&nbsp;&nbsp; After firing, it was gravity that made it drop out.&nbsp; Sometimes<br>
It does, sometimes it does not.&nbsp; In fact, opne of the foremost<br>
collectors of military rifle clips (named Uust, I think) stated in the<br>
American rifleman that the empty Mannlicher-Carcano clip did not come<br>
out until a fresh<br>
loaded clip was introduced into the magazine from the top.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It 
has been my experience, however, that this is only sometimes<br>
the case.&nbsp; Sometimes they drop out on their own; sometimes they do<br>
not.</span></b></p>

P.S. &quot;The rifle (CE 139)was test-fired by all panel members using 6.5<br>
millimeter caliber ammunition of Western cartridge Co. manufacture.<br>
Two bullets were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank.<br>
Further tests were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE<br>
375 cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle.<br>
The cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected<br>
without being fired. WHEN THE LAST CARTRIDGE WAS CHAMBERED, THE<br>
CARTRIDGE CLIP REMAINED IN THE MAGAZINE INSTEAD OF FALLING OUT<font color="#FF0000">
AS IT<br>
WAS DESIGNED TO DO.&quot;</font></b></span></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
Even those testing the rifle expected the clip to fall out since,<br>
by the time of testing , the word was out that the clip was supposed<br>
to fall out of the magazine after the last round was chambered.</span></b></p>

More on the Carcano:<br>
Let us go through the steps required to use your rifle. Firstly the<br>
ammunition you have available is either Norma 6.5 Carcano or you have<br>
skillfully shortened some 6.5 M-S (Mannlicher-Schoenauer) cases 2mm so<br>
they are identical to the factory Norma stuff. Fill your charger/clip<br>
(NOT stripper clip, please) with six cartridges. Lift and draw the<br>
bolt fully to the rear. You will see the gaping opening of the<br>
magazine well looking up at you. Insert your clip into the opening<br>
downward until it locks into place. Push the bolt forward and turn it<br>
down. This will chamber a cartridge and the firearm is ready to fire.<br>
Your rifle may have a long trigger pull <font color="#FF0000">but it will 
probably be a two<br>
stage trigger, most European military rifles have that. It means that<br>
when you squeeze your trigger it will reach a point where there is<br>
resistance to the pressure. That is you second stage. Squeezing a<br>
little more will fire the rifle. The rifle fires! Recoil is minimal.</font><br>
You can smell the burning powder and life is good. Lift your bolt<br>
handle and pull it gently/slowly to the rear. Your fired cartridge<br>
case will emerge from the chamber and you pluck it out of the action<br>
before it gets lost. Now is the time to have a look at it and see if<br>
there is anything to be concerned about. Repeat the above procedures<br>
and fire all six cartridges in your clip/charger. When the last<br>
cartridge is chambered your clip will emerge, and MIGHT even drop, out<br>
of the magazine. You are ready to reload.</b></span></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">The 
clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
Thatís for another story.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">For a 
brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
the magazine from either end.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Of 
course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
clips/chargers you have a single shot rifle!</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Some 
Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
supervision at the end of the war. These are definitely Ďno firingí<br>
statement rifles for the reasons mentioned earlier.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">I donít 
like to fire them for the same reason I donít like root-canal<br>
work. They are just plain awful noise and recoil-wise with the full<br>
military loads. No fun here!</span></b></p>
<p><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none"><b>You are 
advised to play with these using mild cast bullet loads. They<br>
can be made to shoot very well with these projectiles and you donít<br>
come away from the bench a gibbering shell-shocked shooter. These<br>
rifles also used a Carcano type clip/charger, but five shot only as<br>
the body diameter of the eight mil is larger than the 6.5/7.35<br>
cartridges.</b><font color="#FF0000"> <b>Good luck finding the clips. I believe 
there are some in<br>
Italy, but I have only seen photos of them.</b></font></span></p>

&gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue

&gt;

&gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; available. Some were even homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon

&gt; when found. It was empty and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; ------------------------------

&gt; There are various photographs of one of the police detectives carrying

&gt; the rifle out the front door of the book building.&nbsp; From several

&gt; views, one can see an empty clip working its way down out of the clip

&gt; exit.&nbsp;&nbsp; After firing, it was gravity that made it drop out.&nbsp; Sometimes

&gt; It does, sometimes it does not.&nbsp; In fact, opne of the foremost

&gt; collectors of military rifle clips (named Uust, I think) stated in the

&gt; American rifleman that the empty Mannlicher-Carcano clip did not come

&gt; out until a fresh

&gt; loaded clip was introduced into the magazine from the top.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It has been my experience, however, that this is only sometimes

&gt; the case.&nbsp; Sometimes they drop out on their own; sometimes they do

&gt; not.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; As has been pointed out by many diligent researchers, the ''clip

&gt; issue'' is a ''non-issue.''

&gt; ---------------

&gt; P.S. &quot;The rifle (CE 139)was test-fired by all panel members using 6.5

&gt; millimeter caliber ammunition of Western cartridge Co. manufacture.

&gt; Two bullets were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank.

&gt; Further tests were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE

&gt; 375 cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle.

&gt; The cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected

&gt; without being fired. WHEN THE LAST CARTRIDGE WAS CHAMBERED, THE

&gt; CARTRIDGE CLIP REMAINED IN THE MAGAZINE INSTEAD OF FALLING OUT AS IT

&gt; WAS DESIGNED TO DO.&quot;

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Even those testing the rifle expected the clip to fall out since,

&gt; by the time of testing , the word was out that the clip was supposed

&gt; to fall out of the magazine after the last round was chambered.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This is the HSCA Vol. II, pg 365 HSCA Report of the Firearms

&gt; Panel&nbsp;&nbsp; From &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination&quot;

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Kennedy Shooting&nbsp; Evidence examined

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (Page 365)

&gt; -------------------------

&gt; The clip usually falls out, but in some rifles does not.

&gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt; ------------------------------<wbr>--------------

&gt; More on the Carcano:

&gt; Let us go through the steps required to use your rifle. Firstly the

&gt; ammunition you have available is either Norma 6.5 Carcano or you have

&gt; skillfully shortened some 6.5 M-S (Mannlicher-Schoenauer) cases 2mm so

&gt; they are identical to the factory Norma stuff. Fill your charger/clip

&gt; (NOT stripper clip, please) with six cartridges. Lift and draw the

&gt; bolt fully to the rear. You will see the gaping opening of the

&gt; magazine well looking up at you. Insert your clip into the opening

&gt; downward until it locks into place. Push the bolt forward and turn it

&gt; down. This will chamber a cartridge and the firearm is ready to fire.

&gt; Your rifle may have a long trigger pull but it will probably be a two

&gt; stage trigger, most European military rifles have that. It means that

&gt; when you squeeze your trigger it will reach a point where there is

&gt; resistance to the pressure. That is you second stage. Squeezing a

&gt; little more will fire the rifle. The rifle fires! Recoil is minimal.

&gt; You can smell the burning powder and life is good. Lift your bolt

&gt; handle and pull it gently/slowly to the rear. Your fired cartridge

&gt; case will emerge from the chamber and you pluck it out of the action

&gt; before it gets lost. Now is the time to have a look at it and see if

&gt; there is anything to be concerned about. Repeat the above procedures

&gt; and fire all six cartridges in your clip/charger. When the last

&gt; cartridge is chambered your clip will emerge, and MIGHT even drop, out

&gt; of the magazine. You are ready to reload.

&gt;

&gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They

&gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti

&gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.

&gt; Thatís for another story.

&gt;

&gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm

&gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this

&gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case

&gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in

&gt; the magazine from either end.

&gt;

&gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the

&gt; clips/chargers you have a single shot rifle!</span></b></pre>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">The 
Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless there is a<br>
clip available and used to load the cartridge into the chamber.&nbsp; IT<br>
CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">The 
clip was DESIGNED to FALL OUT of the bottom of the rifle when the<br>
last round is stripped from the clip by the forward stroke of the bolt<br>
when chambering that last cartridge.&nbsp; When that last cartridge is<br>
stripped from the clip there is NOTHING to hold the clip in the rifle<br>
and it drops out.&nbsp; Under battlefield conditions when the ejection port<br>
may get dirt or mud in it, which would prevent the light weight clip<br>
from dropping out, the empty clip can then easily be pushed out of the<br>
bottom of the rifle by inserting a fresh full clip of six<br>
cartridges.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">The 
FACT that the clip was in the rifle when it was found BURIED and<br>
HIDDEN beneath boxes of books is a rock solid indicator that the rifle<br>
was prepared as a &quot;throw down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting.&nbsp; It was<br>
prepared as a throw down gun and hidden beneath those boxes of books<br>
BEFORE the shooting by someone who wasn't totally famliar with the<br>
rifle. He apparently did not know that the rifle CANNOT be loaded as a<br>
single shot rifle, and attempted to load the live round into the<br>
chamber by hand, and the close the bolt, only to jamb the bolt in the<br>
manner it is seen in the photos of the rifle being lifted from the<br>
place he had hid it.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&gt;<br>
&gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
&gt; supervision at the end of the war. These are definitely Ďno firingí<br>
&gt; statement rifles for the reasons mentioned earlier.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I donít like to fire them for the same reason I donít like root-canal<br>
&gt; work. They are just plain awful noise and recoil-wise with the full<br>
&gt; military loads. No fun here!<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; You are advised to play with these using mild cast bullet loads. They<br>
&gt; can be made to shoot very well with these projectiles and you donít<br>
&gt; come away from the bench a gibbering shell-shocked shooter. These<br>
&gt; rifles also used a Carcano type clip/charger, but five shot only as<br>
&gt; the body diameter of the eight mil is larger than the 6.5/7.35<br>
&gt; cartridges. Good luck finding the clips. I believe there are some in<br>
&gt; Italy, but I have only seen photos of them.<br>

&gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; available. Some were even homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon

&gt; &gt; when found. It was empty and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; ------------------------------

&gt; &gt; There are various photographs of one of the police detectives carrying

&gt; &gt; the rifle out the front door of the book building.&nbsp; From several

&gt; &gt; views, one can see an empty clip working its way down out of the clip

&gt; &gt; exit.&nbsp;&nbsp; After firing, it was gravity that made it drop out.&nbsp; Sometimes

&gt; &gt; It does, sometimes it does not.&nbsp; In fact, opne of the foremost

&gt; &gt; collectors of military rifle clips (named Uust, I think) stated in the

&gt; &gt; American rifleman that the empty Mannlicher-Carcano clip did not come

&gt; &gt; out until a fresh

&gt; &gt; loaded clip was introduced into the magazine from the top.

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It has been my experience, however, that this is only sometimes

&gt; &gt; the case.&nbsp; Sometimes they drop out on their own; sometimes they do

&gt; &gt; not.

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; As has been pointed out by many diligent researchers, the ''clip

&gt; &gt; issue'' is a ''non-issue.''

&gt; &gt; John in VA

&gt; &gt; ---------------

&gt; &gt; P.S. &quot;The rifle (CE 139)was test-fired by all panel members using 6.5

&gt; &gt; millimeter caliber ammunition of Western cartridge Co. manufacture.

&gt; &gt; Two bullets were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank.

&gt; &gt; Further tests were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE

&gt; &gt; 375 cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle.

&gt; &gt; The cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected

&gt; &gt; without being fired. WHEN THE LAST CARTRIDGE WAS CHAMBERED, THE

&gt; &gt; CARTRIDGE CLIP REMAINED IN THE MAGAZINE INSTEAD OF FALLING OUT AS IT

&gt; &gt; WAS DESIGNED TO DO.&quot;

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Even those testing the rifle expected the clip to fall out since,

&gt; &gt; by the time of testing , the word was out that the clip was supposed

&gt; &gt; to fall out of the magazine after the last round was chambered.

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This is the HSCA Vol. II, pg 365 HSCA Report of the Firearms

&gt; &gt; Panel&nbsp;&nbsp; From &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; &gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination&quot;

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Kennedy Shooting&nbsp; Evidence examined

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (Page 365)

&gt; &gt; -------------------------

&gt; &gt; The clip usually falls out, but in some rifles does not.

&gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt; &gt; ------------------------------<wbr>--------------

&gt; &gt; More on the Carcano:

&gt; &gt; Let us go through the steps required to use your rifle. Firstly the

&gt; &gt; ammunition you have available is either Norma 6.5 Carcano or you have

&gt; &gt; skillfully shortened some 6.5 M-S (Mannlicher-Schoenauer) cases 2mm so

&gt; &gt; they are identical to the factory Norma stuff. Fill your charger/clip

&gt; &gt; (NOT stripper clip, please) with six cartridges. Lift and draw the

&gt; &gt; bolt fully to the rear. You will see the gaping opening of the

&gt; &gt; magazine well looking up at you. Insert your clip into the opening

&gt; &gt; downward until it locks into place. Push the bolt forward and turn it

&gt; &gt; down. This will chamber a cartridge and the firearm is ready to fire.

&gt; &gt; Your rifle may have a long trigger pull but it will probably be a two

&gt; &gt; stage trigger, most European military rifles have that. It means that

&gt; &gt; when you squeeze your trigger it will reach a point where there is

&gt; &gt; resistance to the pressure. That is you second stage. Squeezing a

&gt; &gt; little more will fire the rifle. The rifle fires! Recoil is minimal.

&gt; &gt; You can smell the burning powder and life is good. Lift your bolt

&gt; &gt; handle and pull it gently/slowly to the rear. Your fired cartridge

&gt; &gt; case will emerge from the chamber and you pluck it out of the action

&gt; &gt; before it gets lost. Now is the time to have a look at it and see if

&gt; &gt; there is anything to be concerned about. Repeat the above procedures

&gt; &gt; and fire all six cartridges in your clip/charger. When the last

&gt; &gt; cartridge is chambered your clip will emerge, and MIGHT even drop, out

&gt; &gt; of the magazine. You are ready to reload.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They

&gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti

&gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.

&gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm

&gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this

&gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case

&gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in

&gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the

&gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a single shot rifle!

&gt;

&gt; The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless there is a

&gt; clip available and used to load the cartridge into the chamber.&nbsp; IT

&gt; CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!</span></b></pre>

<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Mr. 
Lutz. This rifle is designed to incorporate that feature so that<br>
the last cartridge is stripped out of the clip, then that allows the<br>
clip itself to fall or to drop from the opening that you see in the<br>
bottom of the box magazine. However, in many cases, and in this<br>
particular case, where we functioned the rifle, fed cartridges through<br>
it, we found this clip to stay in the rifle after the last round had<br>
been stripped and fed into the chamber. Because the lips or the edges<br>
of the clip many times will open up, they will spring against the<br>
walls on the inside of the box magazine and it will hang up in that<br>
areaa [sic], and even though it is supposed to drop out, many times it<br>
will hang up in the box area.11</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">That 
explanation seems reasonable enough. BUT IT IS NOT. It is true<br>
that the clip must be deformed to have any chance of getting as stuck<br>
as this one. But once bent, it stays bent. Commission Exhibits (CEs)<br>
574 and 575 are photographs of the alleged clip in its normal, unbent<br>
condition. And five years after the HSCA reported the clip deformed,<br>
Life magazine photographer Michael O'Neill photographed it in normal<br>

According to reporter Dan Rather, &quot;Eleven volunteer marksmen took<br>
turns firing clips of three bullets each at the moving target.&quot; They<br>
fired a total of thirty-seven three-round series, seventeen of which<br>
resulted in unfired bullets due to &quot;trouble with the rifle.&quot; Clip<br>
problems or not, all data from those seventeen troubled series was<br>
disregarded by CBS analysts. It was the other series of shots,<br>
however, with properly emptied and ejected clips, deemed worthy of<br>
analysis by CBS, that should have been disqualified. In the CBS film,<br>
clips can be seen flying out of the gun so fast as to be a blur.14 If<br>
a test clip is not bent, or ejects, or moves at all, Oswald's alleged<br>
feat is not duplicated, invalidating the test. The HSCA firearms panel<br>
seemed not to be interested in this phenomenon, since it did not test<br>
the clip under firing conditions. Congressman Edgar learned about the<br>

&gt;

&gt; The clip was DESIGNED to FALL OUT of the bottom of the rifle when the

&gt; last round is stripped from the clip by the forward stroke of the bolt

&gt; when chambering that last cartridge.&nbsp; When that last cartridge is

&gt; stripped from the clip there is NOTHING to hold the clip in the rifle

&gt; and it drops out.&nbsp; Under battlefield conditions when the ejection port

&gt; may get dirt or mud in it, which would prevent the light weight clip

&gt; from dropping out, the empty clip can then easily be pushed out of the

&gt; bottom of the rifle by inserting a fresh full clip of six

&gt; cartridges.

&gt;

&gt; The FACT that the clip was in the rifle when it was found BURIED and

&gt; HIDDEN beneath boxes of books is a rock solid indicator that the rifle

&gt; was prepared as a &quot;throw down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting.&nbsp; It was

&gt; prepared as a throw down gun and hidden beneath those boxes of books

&gt; BEFORE the shooting by someone who wasn't totally famliar with the

&gt; rifle. He apparently did not know that the rifle CANNOT be loaded as a

&gt; single shot rifle, and attempted to load the live round into the

&gt; chamber by hand, and the close the bolt, only to jamb the bolt in the

&gt; manner it is seen in the photos of the rifle being lifted from the

&gt; place he had hid it.

&gt;

&gt;

&gt;

&gt;

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German

&gt; &gt; supervision at the end of the war. These are definitely Ďno firingí

&gt; &gt; statement rifles for the reasons mentioned earlier.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; I donít like to fire them for the same reason I donít like root-canal

&gt; &gt; work. They are just plain awful noise and recoil-wise with the full

&gt; &gt; military loads. No fun here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; You are advised to play with these using mild cast bullet loads. They

&gt; &gt; can be made to shoot very well with these projectiles and you donít

&gt; &gt; come away from the bench a gibbering shell-shocked shooter. These

&gt; &gt; rifles also used a Carcano type clip/charger, but five shot only as

&gt; &gt; the body diameter of the eight mil is larger than the 6.5/7.35

&gt; &gt; cartridges. Good luck finding the clips. I believe there are some in

&gt; &gt; Italy, but I have only seen photos of them.

&gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon

&gt; &gt; &gt; when found. It was empty and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; ------------------------------

&gt; &gt; &gt; There are various photographs of one of the police detectives carrying

&gt; &gt; &gt; the rifle out the front door of the book building.&nbsp; From several

&gt; &gt; &gt; views, one can see an empty clip working its way down out of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; exit.&nbsp;&nbsp; After firing, it was gravity that made it drop out.&nbsp; Sometimes

&gt; &gt; &gt; It does, sometimes it does not.&nbsp; In fact, opne of the foremost

&gt; &gt; &gt; collectors of military rifle clips (named Uust, I think) stated in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; American rifleman that the empty Mannlicher-Carcano clip did not come

&gt; &gt; &gt; out until a fresh

&gt; &gt; &gt; loaded clip was introduced into the magazine from the top.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It has been my experience, however, that this is only sometimes

&gt; &gt; &gt; the case. &nbsp;Sometimes they drop out on their own; sometimes they do

&gt; &gt; &gt; not.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; As has been pointed out by many diligent researchers, the ''clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; issue'' is a ''non-issue.''

&gt; &gt; &gt; John in VA

&gt; &gt; &gt; ---------------

&gt; &gt; &gt; P.S. &quot;The rifle (CE 139)was test-fired by all panel members using 6.5

&gt; &gt; &gt; millimeter caliber ammunition of Western cartridge Co. manufacture.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Two bullets were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Further tests were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE

&gt; &gt; &gt; 375 cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle.

&gt; &gt; &gt; The cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected

&gt; &gt; &gt; without being fired. WHEN THE LAST CARTRIDGE WAS CHAMBERED, THE

&gt; &gt; &gt; CARTRIDGE CLIP REMAINED IN THE MAGAZINE INSTEAD OF FALLING OUT AS IT

&gt; &gt; &gt; WAS DESIGNED TO DO.&quot;

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Even those testing the rifle expected the clip to fall out since,

&gt; &gt; &gt; by the time of testing , the word was out that the clip was supposed

&gt; &gt; &gt; to fall out of the magazine after the last round was chambered.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; -------------------------

&gt; &gt; &gt; The clip usually falls out, but in some rifles does not.

&gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt; &gt; &gt; ------------------------------<wbr>--------------

&gt; &gt; &gt; More on the Carcano:

&gt; &gt; &gt; Let us go through the steps required to use your rifle. Firstly the

&gt; &gt; &gt; ammunition you have available is either Norma 6.5 Carcano or you have

&gt; &gt; &gt; skillfully shortened some 6.5 M-S (Mannlicher-Schoenauer) cases 2mm so

&gt; &gt; &gt; they are identical to the factory Norma stuff. Fill your charger/clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; (NOT stripper clip, please) with six cartridges. Lift and draw the

&gt; &gt; &gt; bolt fully to the rear. You will see the gaping opening of the

&gt; &gt; &gt; magazine well looking up at you. Insert your clip into the opening

&gt; &gt; &gt; downward until it locks into place. Push the bolt forward and turn it

&gt; &gt; &gt; down. This will chamber a cartridge and the firearm is ready to fire.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Your rifle may have a long trigger pull but it will probably be a two

&gt; &gt; &gt; stage trigger, most European military rifles have that. It means that

&gt; &gt; &gt; when you squeeze your trigger it will reach a point where there is

&gt; &gt; &gt; resistance to the pressure. That is you second stage. Squeezing a

&gt; &gt; &gt; little more will fire the rifle. The rifle fires! Recoil is minimal.

&gt; &gt; &gt; You can smell the burning powder and life is good. Lift your bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; handle and pull it gently/slowly to the rear. Your fired cartridge

&gt; &gt; &gt; case will emerge from the chamber and you pluck it out of the action

&gt; &gt; &gt; before it gets lost. Now is the time to have a look at it and see if

&gt; &gt; &gt; there is anything to be concerned about. Repeat the above procedures

&gt; &gt; &gt; and fire all six cartridges in your clip/charger. When the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge is chambered your clip will emerge, and MIGHT even drop, out

&gt; &gt; &gt; of the magazine. You are ready to reload.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They

&gt; &gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti

&gt; &gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this

&gt; &gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case

&gt; &gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in

&gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the

&gt; &gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a single shot rifle!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless there is a

&gt; &gt; clip available and used to load the cartridge into the chamber.&nbsp; IT

&gt; &gt; CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; CBS News, which claimed to &quot;duplicate the conditions of the actual

&gt; assassination&quot; in its filmed rifle test in 1967:

&gt;

&gt; The cartridge clip was removed from CE-139 by Lieutenant Day of the

&gt; Dallas Police Department on November 22, 1963 at the crime laboratory

&gt; for the police department. Shouldn't a clip automatically fall out

&gt; once the last cartridge has fed into the chamber?

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. This rifle is designed to incorporate that feature so that

&gt; the last cartridge is stripped out of the clip, then that allows the

&gt; clip itself to fall or to drop from the opening that you see in the

&gt; bottom of the box magazine. However, in many cases, and in this

&gt; particular case, where we functioned the rifle, fed cartridges through

&gt; it, we found this clip to stay in the rifle after the last round had

&gt; been stripped and fed into the chamber. Because the lips or the edges

&gt; of the clip many times will open up, they will spring against the

&gt; walls on the inside of the box magazine and it will hang up in that

&gt; areaa [sic], and even though it is supposed to drop out, many times it

&gt; will hang up in the box area.11

&gt;

&gt; That explanation seems reasonable enough. BUT IT IS NOT. It is true

&gt; that the clip must be deformed to have any chance of getting as stuck

&gt; as this one. But once bent, it stays bent. Commission Exhibits (CEs)

&gt; 574 and 575 are photographs of the alleged clip in its normal, unbent

&gt; condition. And five years after the HSCA reported the clip deformed,

&gt; Life magazine photographer Michael O'Neill photographed it in normal

&gt; condition for Life's November 1983 issue.12

&gt;

&gt; According to reporter Dan Rather, &quot;Eleven volunteer marksmen took

&gt; turns firing clips of three bullets each at the moving target.&quot; They

&gt; fired a total of thirty-seven three-round series, seventeen of which

&gt; resulted in unfired bullets due to &quot;trouble with the rifle.&quot; Clip

&gt; problems or not, all data from those seventeen troubled series was

&gt; disregarded by CBS analysts. It was the other series of shots,

&gt; however, with properly emptied and ejected clips, deemed worthy of

&gt; analysis by CBS, that should have been disqualified. In the CBS film,

&gt; clips can be seen flying out of the gun so fast as to be a blur.14 If

&gt; a test clip is not bent, or ejects, or moves at all, Oswald's alleged

&gt; feat is not duplicated, invalidating the test. The HSCA firearms panel

&gt; seemed not to be interested in this phenomenon, since it did not test

&gt; the clip under firing conditions. Congressman Edgar learned about the

&gt; defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked for details about their firing

&gt; test:

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber

&gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the

&gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then

&gt; firing into it, in order to recover the projectile.

&gt; ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using the clip,

&gt; were you?

&gt;

&gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.

&gt;

&gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?

&gt;

&gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to

&gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time

&gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.15

&gt;

&gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets

&gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests

&gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]

&gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The</span></b></pre>

&gt; &gt; assassination&quot; in its filmed rifle test in 1967:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The cartridge clip was removed from CE-139 by Lieutenant Day of the

&gt; &gt; Dallas Police Department on November 22, 1963 at the crime laboratory

&gt; &gt; for the police department. Shouldn't a clip automatically fall out

&gt; &gt; once the last cartridge has fed into the chamber?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. This rifle is designed to incorporate that feature so that

&gt; &gt; the last cartridge is stripped out of the clip, then that allows the

&gt; &gt; clip itself to fall or to drop from the opening that you see in the

&gt; &gt; bottom of the box magazine. However, in many cases, and in this

&gt; &gt; particular case, where we functioned the rifle, fed cartridges through

&gt; &gt; it, we found this clip to stay in the rifle after the last round had

&gt; &gt; been stripped and fed into the chamber. Because the lips or the edges

&gt; &gt; of the clip many times will open up, they will spring against the

&gt; &gt; walls on the inside of the box magazine and it will hang up in that

&gt; &gt; areaa [sic], and even though it is supposed to drop out, many times it

&gt; &gt; will hang up in the box area.11

&gt;

&gt; &gt; That explanation seems reasonable enough. BUT IT IS NOT. It is true

&gt; &gt; that the clip must be deformed to have any chance of getting as stuck

&gt; &gt; as this one. But once bent, it stays bent. Commission Exhibits (CEs)

&gt; &gt; 574 and 575 are photographs of the alleged clip in its normal, unbent

&gt; &gt; condition. And five years after the HSCA reported the clip deformed,

&gt; &gt; Life magazine photographer Michael O'Neill photographed it in normal

&gt; &gt; condition for Life's November 1983 issue.12

&gt;

&gt; &gt; According to reporter Dan Rather, &quot;Eleven volunteer marksmen took

&gt; &gt; turns firing clips of three bullets each at the moving target.&quot; They

&gt; &gt; fired a total of thirty-seven three-round series, seventeen of which

&gt; &gt; resulted in unfired bullets due to &quot;trouble with the rifle.&quot; Clip

&gt; &gt; problems or not, all data from those seventeen troubled series was

&gt; &gt; disregarded by CBS analysts. It was the other series of shots,

&gt; &gt; however, with properly emptied and ejected clips, deemed worthy of

&gt; &gt; analysis by CBS, that should have been disqualified. In the CBS film,

&gt; &gt; clips can be seen flying out of the gun so fast as to be a blur.14 If

&gt; &gt; a test clip is not bent, or ejects, or moves at all, Oswald's alleged

&gt; &gt; feat is not duplicated, invalidating the test. The HSCA firearms panel

&gt; &gt; seemed not to be interested in this phenomenon, since it did not test

&gt; &gt; the clip under firing conditions. Congressman Edgar learned about the

&gt; &gt; defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked for details about their firing

&gt; &gt; test:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber

&gt; &gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the

&gt; &gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then

&gt; &gt; firing into it, in order to recover the projectile.

&gt; &gt; ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using the clip,

&gt; &gt; were you?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to

&gt; &gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time

&gt; &gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.15

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; &gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets

&gt; &gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests

&gt; &gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]

&gt; &gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The

&gt; &gt; cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ...

&gt;

&gt; Raymond you can believe whoever and whatever you choose to

&gt; believe.....But keep in mind that those who claim the clip does not

&gt; fall out of the rifle when the last cartridge is chambered have some

&gt; ulterior motive telling that lie.&nbsp;&nbsp; I guarantee you that the clip DOES

&gt; fall out of the rifle when the last cartridge is chambered.&nbsp; Since

&gt; this is a FACT that clip should have been found in the so called

&gt; &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot; where according to the Warren Commission's THEORY

&gt; Oswald chambered that last round.&nbsp;&nbsp; ( What a CROCK!!!)</span></b></pre>

&gt; &gt; &gt; CBS News, which claimed to &quot;duplicate the conditions of the actual

&gt; &gt; &gt; assassination&quot; in its filmed rifle test in 1967:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The cartridge clip was removed from CE-139 by Lieutenant Day of the

&gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas Police Department on November 22, 1963 at the crime laboratory

&gt; &gt; &gt; for the police department. Shouldn't a clip automatically fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; once the last cartridge has fed into the chamber?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. This rifle is designed to incorporate that feature so that

&gt; &gt; &gt; the last cartridge is stripped out of the clip, then that allows the

&gt; &gt; &gt; clip itself to fall or to drop from the opening that you see in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; bottom of the box magazine. However, in many cases, and in this

&gt; &gt; &gt; particular case, where we functioned the rifle, fed cartridges through

&gt; &gt; &gt; it, we found this clip to stay in the rifle after the last round had

&gt; &gt; &gt; been stripped and fed into the chamber. Because the lips or the edges

&gt; &gt; &gt; of the clip many times will open up, they will spring against the

&gt; &gt; &gt; walls on the inside of the box magazine and it will hang up in that

&gt; &gt; &gt; areaa [sic], and even though it is supposed to drop out, many times it

&gt; &gt; &gt; will hang up in the box area.11

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; That explanation seems reasonable enough. BUT IT IS NOT. It is true

&gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip must be deformed to have any chance of getting as stuck

&gt; &gt; &gt; as this one. But once bent, it stays bent. Commission Exhibits (CEs)

&gt; &gt; &gt; 574 and 575 are photographs of the alleged clip in its normal, unbent

&gt; &gt; &gt; condition. And five years after the HSCA reported the clip deformed,

&gt; &gt; &gt; Life magazine photographer Michael O'Neill photographed it in normal

&gt; &gt; &gt; condition for Life's November 1983 issue.12

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; According to reporter Dan Rather, &quot;Eleven volunteer marksmen took

&gt; &gt; &gt; turns firing clips of three bullets each at the moving target.&quot; They

&gt; &gt; &gt; fired a total of thirty-seven three-round series, seventeen of which

&gt; &gt; &gt; resulted in unfired bullets due to &quot;trouble with the rifle.&quot; Clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; problems or not, all data from those seventeen troubled series was

&gt; &gt; &gt; disregarded by CBS analysts. It was the other series of shots,

&gt; &gt; &gt; however, with properly emptied and ejected clips, deemed worthy of

&gt; &gt; &gt; analysis by CBS, that should have been disqualified. In the CBS film,

&gt; &gt; &gt; clips can be seen flying out of the gun so fast as to be a blur.14 If

&gt; &gt; &gt; a test clip is not bent, or ejects, or moves at all, Oswald's alleged

&gt; &gt; &gt; feat is not duplicated, invalidating the test. The HSCA firearms panel

&gt; &gt; &gt; seemed not to be interested in this phenomenon, since it did not test

&gt; &gt; &gt; the clip under firing conditions. Congressman Edgar learned about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked for details about their firing

&gt; &gt; &gt; test:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber

&gt; &gt; &gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then

&gt; &gt; &gt; firing into it, in order to recover the projectile.

&gt; &gt; &gt; ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using the clip,

&gt; &gt; &gt; were you?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to

&gt; &gt; &gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time

&gt; &gt; &gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.15

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; &gt; &gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets

&gt; &gt; &gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests

&gt; &gt; &gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ...

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Raymond you can believe whoever and whatever you choose to

&gt; &gt; believe.....But keep in mind that those who claim the clip does not

&gt; &gt; fall out of the rifle when the last cartridge is chambered have some

&gt; &gt; ulterior motive telling that lie.&nbsp;&nbsp; I guarantee you that the clip DOES

&gt; &gt; fall out of the rifle when the last cartridge is chambered.&nbsp; Since

&gt; &gt; this is a FACT that clip should have been found in the so called

&gt; &gt; &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot; where according to the Warren Commission's THEORY

&gt; &gt; Oswald chambered that last round.&nbsp;&nbsp; ( What a CROCK!!!)

&gt;

&gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all</span></b></pre>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">
THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald<br>
fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires<br>
that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final<br>
live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; They said Oswald had FOUR<br>
cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells<br>
were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; IF there were three<br>
spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER<br>
the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt<br>
after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last<br>
cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at<br>
that time.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">BUT the

<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">What 
actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw<br>
down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and<br>
hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the<br>
rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the<br>
chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in<br>
the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.</span></b></p>

&gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?</span></b></pre>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">If I 
may.<br>
There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD<br>
was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.<br>
This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at<br>
police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the<br>
start.</span></b></p>

According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army<br>
and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at<br>
Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the<br>

ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did<br>
not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier<br>
carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was<br>

and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The<br>
battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as<br>
original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used<br>
with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in<br>
Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade<br>

gunshots required careful scrutiny of all of this testimony regarding<br>
the number of shots. The firing of a bullet causes a number of noises:<br>
the muzzle blast, caused by the smashing of the hot gases which<br>
propel<br>
the bullet into the relatively stable air at the gun's muzzle; the<br>
noise of the bullet, caused by the shock wave built up ahead of the<br>
bullet's nose as it travels through the air; and the noise caused by<br>
the impact of the bullet on its target.335 Each noise can be quite<br>
sharp and may be perceived as a separate shot. The tall buildings in<br>
the area might have further distorted the sound.</span></b></p>

larger fragments found in the Presidential automobile, which were<br>
identified as coming from the assassination rifle, came from at least<br>
two separate bullets and possibly from three.336 The most convincing<br>
evidence relating to the number of shots was provided by the presence<br>

Let me go back now for just a moment and ask you how many shots you<br>
heard altogether.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Mr.

I thought I heard two, it could be three, because to my estimation I<br>
thought he was hit on the second--I really don't know. The whole thing<br>
that has been transpiring--it was very upsetting and as you see I got<br>
a little better all the time and this came up again and it to me<br>
looked like the second shot, but I don't know. I never even heard a<br>
third shot.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">And 
Tague thought the shots came from up on the hill:<br>
Mr. Tague.<br>
Well, I was standing there watching, and really I was watching to try<br>
to distinguish the President and his car. About this time I heard what<br>
sounded like a firecracker. Well, a very loud firecracker. It<br>
certainly didn't sound like a rifle shot. It was more of a loud<br>
cannon- type sound. I looked around to see who was throwing<br>
firecrackers or what was going on and I turned my head away from the<br>
motorcade and, of course, two more shots.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">And I 
ducked behind the post when I realized somebody was shooting<br>
after the third shot. After the third shot, I ducked behind the bridge<br>
abutment and was there for a second, and I glanced out and Just as I<br>
looked out, the car following the President's car, the one with the<br>
Secret Service men, was just flying past at that time.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Summing 
up. One shot missed the car completely and there is no record<br>
of recovering any of its remains. One shot allegedly passed through<br>
Kennedy and Connally and magically remained near pristine and ended up<br>
at Parkland Hospital.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">This 
bullet weighed 161 grains before it was fired at the motorcade.<br>
When recovered it weighed 158.6 grains which means that very little<br>
was lost in its destructive journey.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">A 
fragment weighing 0.5 grains was recovered from Connally's arm.<br>
Audrey Bell, the operating nurse, stated that there were four or five<br>
fragments &quot;anywhere from three to four millimeters in length and a<br>
couple of millimeters wide. &quot; These fragments disappeared at the<br>
autopsy.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">In 
addition, what happened to the fragment found in Connally's leg<br>
wound?&nbsp; Also, there was a fragment in the governor's chest that was<br>
never recovered. He died with fragments still in his body that weighed<br>
more that the alleged two to three missing grains from C-399 that was<br>
described as near pristine. And the Warrens say ,&nbsp; about pristine,<br>
&quot;The Governor's wrist wound WAS NOT CAUSED BY A PRISTINE BULLET.&quot; p.<br>
94</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">So this 
leaves one bullet and it had to be the fatal projectile that<br>
removed part of the president's skull and much of his brains.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">After 
the coup, two bullet fragments were found in the Lincoln.<br>
According to Warren , the two fragments weighed 44.6 and 21.0 grains<br>
respectively.&quot;The heavier fragment was a portion of a bullet's nose<br>
area... the lighter fragment consisted of a bullet's base... the two<br>
fragments were both mutilated, and it was not possible to determine<br>
from the fragments themselves whether they comprised the base and nose<br>
of one bullet or of two separate bullets.&quot;&nbsp; WR</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">If one 
bullet missed the car completely and one ended up at Parkland<br>
almost pristine, the last bullet logically would have to be the bullet<br>
that hit JFK in the head and both fragments were from the same<br>
projectile&nbsp; I disagree with this conclusion.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">I 
suspect&nbsp; that, with the angle of the neck shot, the above fragments<br>
would remain in the car, ergo,the remains of the single bullet , and<br>
the head shot bullet probably ended up in tiny bits in Dealey Plaza.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Some 
say that Tague was hit by the first MISSED shot, but he heard<br>
shots before he was hit by a very tiny fragment. So, he was probably<br>
hit by a fragment from the third shot instead of the ALLEGED MISSED<br>
FIRST SHOT.&nbsp; He also thought that the shots came from the &quot;hill&quot;</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">I 
personally do not believe there was a missed shot.&nbsp; If I were the<br>
master-mind of the murder, I would be sure to provide evidence that<br>
would assure the connection to the rifle and its owner. And since I<br>
could not rely on the future condition of the bullets actually fired<br>
at the occupants of the limousine, I would fire a bullet through the<br>
barrel of the murder weapon before 11-22-63 and be sure to leave it<br>
where it would be found. Enter the near pristine Parkland slug.</span></b></p>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; If I may.

&gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt;

&gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; available. Some were even

&gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested. .The

&gt; clips/chargers can be inserted in the magazine from either end and

&gt; they can be used over and over, and, remember without the clips/

&gt; chargers you have a single shot rifle!

&gt; However, when the last cartridge is chambered your clip may emerge,

&gt; and MIGHT even drop, out of the magazine and it may not. You are then

&gt; ready to reload. Reloaded clips are not reliable to perform as Charles

&gt; H.Yust,Jr described the original factory loaded clips.

&gt;

&gt; The HSCA firearms panel seemed not to be interested in this

&gt; phenomenon, since it did not test the clip under firing conditions.

&gt; Congressman Edgar learned about the defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked

&gt; for details about their firing test:

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber

&gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the

&gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then

&gt; firing into it, in order to recover the

&gt; projectile. ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using

&gt; the clip, were you?

&gt;

&gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.

&gt;

&gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?

&gt;

&gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to

&gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time

&gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.

&gt;

&gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets

&gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests

&gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]

&gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The

&gt; cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected

&gt; without being fired. When the last cartridge was chambered, the

&gt; cartridge clip remained in the magazine instead of falling out as it

&gt; is designed to do.&quot;16 Given Mr. Lutz's &quot;the clip many times will open

&gt; up&quot; statement, this result demands further explanation.

&gt;

&gt; &quot;Many times will&quot; also means &quot;many times won't.&quot; Metal expands when

&gt; heated and can alter its shape. But during the HSCA tests of the

&gt; loading mechanism, the rifle should have been cool. In addition, CE

&gt; 541 (3), a photograph of the clip stuck in the magazine reproduced on

&gt; page 83 of the Warren Report, shows it in a cool rifle. Surely the

&gt; rifle had not been fired for some time before that photography

&gt; session. Is Lutz suggesting that the clip's sides spring out when

&gt; cool

&gt; and then return to a normal shape in the heat of firing? If such a

&gt; violation of the laws of physics occurs with this rifle and clip, how

&gt; then could the rifle have &quot;contained a clip&quot; when found?

&gt;

&gt; ---- PHYSICAL EVIDENCE / The Rifle

&gt;

&gt; That said, there is definite suspicion that the weapon used was not

&gt; the one LHO bought in the spring of 1963 to kill Walker with. It is

&gt; suspected that a second rifle was purchased and the serial number was

&gt; changed to C-2766 to frame the rabbit, Oswald.

&gt;

&gt; That rifle, now in the National Archives, has had the serial number

&gt; changed to C-2766 in order to frame the rabbit. Someday someone will

&gt; prove that point. We are talking about two different weapons.&nbsp; Ask any

&gt; good gunsmith how easy that would be to change a serial number.

&gt;

&gt; A strong argument can be made that the murder weapon was not the

&gt; weapon Lee bought in March to kill Gen. Walker with. The strange thing

&gt; is that they both had the same serial number ;which was the thing that

&gt; connected LHO to ownership. But, anyone familiar with the weapon knows

&gt; that the serial number is on the rear end of the barrel where the

&gt; barrel screws into the receiver. It can be removed in minutes and the

&gt; serial number can be changed&nbsp; very easily. Ask any good gunsmith.

&gt;

&gt; From Martha Moyer, well known to the JFK assassination community.:

&gt;

&gt; &quot;Do you know how easy it is to change a SN on a rifle?&nbsp; I do!!! About

&gt; six months ago I considered having the SN on my MC changed to read

&gt; C2766. The gunsmith told me &quot;no problem - in fact, quite simple&quot; (Oh,

&gt; by the way, my MC is a 36&quot;) If I wanted to frame somebody - I would

&gt; get the serial number of their gun - registered to them - find a

&gt; duplicate and change to their SN.&nbsp; I would then leave it at the scene

&gt; of the crime&quot;

&gt;

&gt; Martha Moyer

&gt;

&gt; Numerous weapons experts have compared the photos taken by Marina with

&gt; photos of the murder weapon and agree that they are not the same

&gt; weapon.

&gt;

&gt; We must hopefully use absolute evidence when we can, evidence that

&gt; could be used in a courtroom and there is really very little that

&gt; could be used against Oswald. Working in the building where the shots

&gt; came from is not enough and there is doubt that three shots even came

&gt; from the building. It was the serial number that connected Oswald to

&gt; the murder weapon

&gt;

&gt; There was no missed shot....?

&gt;

&gt; Despite the claims that there were three shots from the TSBD fired at

&gt; the JFK limousine.... prove it... Where is the physical evidence? The

&gt; three shell casings found under the sixth floor window? That won't do.

&gt; Even the Warren Wizards weren't sure.

&gt; SEE Page 110 and 111 of the Report to the President NUMBER OF SHOTS

&gt;

&gt; &quot;The consensus among the witnesses at the scene was that three shots

&gt; were fired.332 However, some heard only two shots,333 while others

&gt; testified that they heard four and perhaps as many as five or six

&gt; shots.334 The difficulty of accurate perception of the sound of

&gt; gunshots required careful scrutiny of all of this testimony regarding

&gt; the number of shots. The firing of a bullet causes a number of noises:

&gt; the muzzle blast, caused by the smashing of the hot gases which

&gt; propel

&gt; the bullet into the relatively stable air at the gun's muzzle; the

&gt; noise of the bullet, caused by the shock wave built up ahead of the

&gt; bullet's nose as it travels through the air; and the noise caused by

&gt; the impact of the bullet on its target.335 Each noise can be quite

&gt; sharp and may be perceived as a separate shot. The tall buildings in

&gt; the area might have further distorted the sound.

&gt;

&gt; The physical and other evidence examined by the Commission compels the

&gt; conclusion that AT LEAST TWO SHOTS WERE FIRED As discussed previously,

&gt; the nearly whole bullet discovered at Parkland Hospital and the two

&gt; larger fragments found in the Presidential automobile, which were

&gt; identified as coming from the assassination rifle, came from at least

&gt; two separate bullets and possibly from three.336 The most convincing

&gt; evidence relating to the number of shots was provided by the presence

&gt; on the sixth floor of three spent cartridges which were demonstrated

&gt; to have been fired by the same rifle that fired the bullets which

&gt; caused the wounds. It is POSSIBLE that the assassin carried an EMPTY

&gt; SHELL in the rifle and fired only two shots, with the witnesses

&gt; hearing multiple noises made by the same shot. Soon after the</span></b></pre>

&gt;

&gt; Even Zapruder was not sure of the shot sequence:

&gt; Mr. Liebeler.

&gt; Let me go back now for just a moment and ask you how many shots you

&gt; heard altogether.

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Zapruder.

&gt; I thought I heard two, it could be three, because to my estimation I

&gt; thought he was hit on the second--I really don't know. The whole thing

&gt; that has been transpiring--it was very upsetting and as you see I got

&gt; a little better all the time and this came up again and it to me

&gt; looked like the second shot, but I don't know. I never even heard a

&gt; third shot.

&gt;

&gt; And Tague thought the shots came from up on the hill:

&gt; Mr. Tague.

&gt; Well, I was standing there watching, and really I was watching to try

&gt; to distinguish the President and his car. About this time I heard what

&gt; sounded like a firecracker. Well, a very loud firecracker. It

&gt; certainly didn't sound like a rifle shot. It was more of a loud

&gt; cannon- type sound. I looked around to see who was throwing

&gt; firecrackers or what was going on and I turned my head away from the

&gt; motorcade and, of course, two more shots.

&gt;

&gt; And I ducked behind the post when I realized somebody was shooting

&gt; after the third shot. After the third shot, I ducked behind the bridge

&gt; abutment and was there for a second, and I glanced out and Just as I

&gt; looked out, the car following the President's car, the one with the

&gt; Secret Service men, was just flying past at that time.

&gt;

&gt; Summing up. One shot missed the car completely and there is no record

&gt; of recovering any of its remains. One shot allegedly passed through

&gt; Kennedy and Connally and magically remained near pristine and ended up

&gt; at Parkland Hospital.

&gt;

&gt; This bullet weighed 161 grains before it was fired at the motorcade.

&gt; When recovered it weighed 158.6 grains which means that very little

&gt; was lost in its destructive journey.

&gt;

&gt; A fragment weighing 0.5 grains was recovered from Connally's arm.

&gt; Audrey Bell, the operating nurse, stated that there were four or five

&gt; fragments &quot;anywhere from three to four millimeters in length and a

&gt; couple of millimeters wide. &quot; These fragments disappeared at the

&gt; autopsy.

&gt;

&gt; In addition, what happened to the fragment found in Connally's leg

&gt; wound?&nbsp; Also, there was a fragment in the governor's chest that was

&gt; never recovered. He died with fragments still in his body that weighed

&gt; more that the alleged two to three missing grains from C-399 that was

&gt; described as near pristine. And the Warrens say ,&nbsp; about pristine,

&gt; &quot;The Governor's wrist wound WAS NOT CAUSED BY A PRISTINE BULLET.&quot; p.

&gt; 94

&gt;

&gt; So this leaves one bullet and it had to be the fatal projectile that

&gt; removed part of the president's skull and much of his brains.

&gt;

&gt; After the coup, two bullet fragments were found in the Lincoln.

&gt; According to Warren , the two fragments weighed 44.6 and 21.0 grains

&gt; respectively.&quot;The heavier fragment was a portion of a bullet's nose

&gt; area... the lighter fragment consisted of a bullet's base... the two

&gt; fragments were both mutilated, and it was not possible to determine

&gt; from the fragments themselves whether they comprised the base and nose

&gt; of one bullet or of two separate bullets.&quot;&nbsp; WR

&gt;

&gt; If one bullet missed the car completely and one ended up at Parkland

&gt; almost pristine, the last bullet logically would have to be the bullet

&gt; that hit JFK in the head and both fragments were from the same

&gt; projectile&nbsp; I disagree with this conclusion.

&gt;

&gt; I suspect&nbsp; that, with the angle of the neck shot, the above fragments

&gt; would remain in the car, ergo,the remains of the single bullet , and

&gt; the head shot bullet probably ended up in tiny bits in Dealey Plaza.

&gt;

&gt; Some say that Tague was hit by the first MISSED shot, but he heard

&gt; shots before he was hit by a very tiny fragment. So, he was probably

&gt; hit by a fragment from the third shot instead of the ALLEGED MISSED

&gt; FIRST SHOT.&nbsp; He also thought that the shots came from the &quot;hill&quot;

&gt;

&gt; I personally do not believe there was a missed shot.&nbsp; If I were the

&gt; master-mind of the murder, I would be sure to provide evidence that

&gt; would assure the connection to the rifle and its owner. And since I

&gt; could not rely on the future condition of the bullets actually fired

&gt; at the occupants of the limousine, I would fire a bullet through the

&gt; barrel of the murder weapon before 11-22-63 and be sure to leave it

&gt; where it would be found. Enter the near pristine Parkland slug.

&gt;

&gt; And enter Jack Ruby and the Parkland slug.

&gt;

&gt; As Assistant.&nbsp; DA&nbsp; Alexander said, &quot;The single bullet is like the

&gt; Immaculate Conception. Either you believe it or you don't.&quot;

&gt;

&gt; Amen and amen.

&gt; Now we will hear from WALT correcting me again.

&gt; Let us prey.

<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
There is much speculation about where it went--some say Greece..</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; My 
best understanding is that part of the contract never left the<br>
U.S and that another part found its way back into the U.S.<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; If true, then some of that ammo was sold on the U.S. surplus<br>
market illegally--as the aid laws forbade the reimportation and sale<br>
of stuff sent overseas. It may have come back in the country via<br>
Canada.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The 
ammunition was advertised regularly in American Rifleman<br>
magazine beginning, I think, in late 1961, sold at a premium price,<br>
because it had non-corrosive primers.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
Several jobbers were selling it in case lots.&nbsp; I have the prices<br>
somewhere in my notes.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The 
FBI found that only one or two gun shops in the Dallas area<br>
were selling the ammo.&nbsp; They interviewed one owner, a fellow named<br>
Masen, who said he had split a case lot with someone else.&nbsp; Masen<br>
denied to the FBI having sold any of the ammo to Oswald.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
That's about all I know off the top of my head.<br>

<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;I can 
provide some information about the ammo used in Dallas.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp; The 
ammo was made by Western Cartridge Company of East Alton,<br>
Illinois. It was bought by the Army for the CIA in 1954. It was<br>
secretly made for the Italian government for the use in the overthrow<br>
of the Communist government in Albania.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;The 
CIA operation failed and the ammo went into storage. Most of it<br>
was later used in the Cuban Bay of Pigs fiasco. What was remaining was<br>
released into the American surplus market(reported about 2 million<br>
rounds).</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
Originally, the Army received about 4 million rounds from Western<br>
in lots 6000, 6001, 6002 and 6003. The Dallas ammo came from Lot<br>
#6002.</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; An 
FBI memorandum, dated Dec. 1963 reads, &quot;... does not fit and<br>
cannot be fired in any of the Marine Corps weapons.&quot;</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It 
was sold in boxes of 20 rounds. Marked on the box was;<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 20 CARTRIDGES<br>

<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; In 
1963, this was probably the most reliable 6.5 mm ammo avaiable<br>
since older ammo was responsible for&nbsp; about 10 per cent misfires.</span></b></p>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered. &nbsp;

&gt;

&gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; If I may.

&gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; available. Some were even

&gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested. .The

&gt; clips/chargers can be inserted in the magazine from either end and

&gt; they can be used over and over, and, remember without the clips/

&gt; chargers you have a single shot rifle!

&gt; However, when the last cartridge is chambered your clip may emerge,

&gt; and MIGHT even drop, out of the magazine and it may not. You are then

&gt; ready to reload. Reloaded clips are not reliable to perform as Charles

&gt; H.Yust,Jr described the original factory loaded clips.

&gt;

&gt; The HSCA firearms panel seemed not to be interested in this

&gt; phenomenon, since it did not test the clip under firing conditions.

&gt; Congressman Edgar learned about the defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked

&gt; for details about their firing test:

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber

&gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the

&gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then

&gt; firing into it, in order to recover the

&gt; projectile. ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using

&gt; the clip, were you?

&gt;

&gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.

&gt;

&gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?

&gt;

&gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to

&gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time

&gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.

&gt;

&gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets

&gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests

&gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]

&gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The

&gt; cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected

&gt; without being fired. When the last cartridge was chambered, the

&gt; cartridge clip remained in the magazine instead of falling out as it

&gt; is designed to do.&quot;16 Given Mr. Lutz's &quot;the clip many times will open

&gt; up&quot; statement, this result demands further explanation.

&gt;

&gt; &quot;Many times will&quot; also means &quot;many times won't.&quot; Metal expands when

&gt; heated and can alter its shape. But during the HSCA tests of the

&gt; loading mechanism, the rifle should have been cool. In addition, CE

&gt; 541 (3), a photograph of the clip stuck in the magazine reproduced on

&gt; page 83 of the Warren Report, shows it in a cool rifle. Surely the

&gt; rifle had not been fired for some time before that photography

&gt; session. Is Lutz suggesting that the clip's sides spring out when

&gt; cool

&gt; and then return to a normal shape in the heat of firing? If such a

&gt; violation of the laws of physics occurs with this rifle and clip, how

&gt; then could the rifle have &quot;contained a clip&quot; when found?

&gt;

&gt; ---- PHYSICAL EVIDENCE / The Rifle

&gt;

&gt; That said, there is definite suspicion that the weapon used was not

&gt; the one LHO bought in the spring of 1963 to kill Walker with. It is

&gt; suspected that a second rifle was purchased and the serial number was

&gt; changed to C-2766 to frame the rabbit, Oswald.

&gt;

&gt; That rifle, now in the National Archives, has had the serial number

&gt; changed to C-2766 in order to frame the rabbit. Someday someone will

&gt; prove that point. We are talking about two different weapons.&nbsp; Ask any

&gt; good gunsmith how easy that would be to change a serial number.

&gt;

&gt; A strong argument can be made that the murder weapon was not the

&gt; weapon Lee bought in March to kill Gen. Walker with. The strange thing

&gt; is that they both had the same serial number ;which was the thing that

&gt; connected LHO to ownership. But, anyone familiar with the weapon knows

&gt; that the serial number is on the rear end of the barrel where the

&gt; barrel screws into the receiver. It can be removed in minutes and the

&gt; serial number can be changed&nbsp; very easily. Ask any good gunsmith.

&gt;

&gt; From Martha Moyer, well known to the JFK assassination community.:

&gt;

&gt; &quot;Do you know how easy it is to change a SN on a rifle?&nbsp; I do!!! About

&gt; six months ago I considered having the SN on my MC changed to read

&gt; C2766. The gunsmith told me &quot;no problem - in fact, quite simple&quot; (Oh,

&gt; by the way, my MC is a 36&quot;) If I wanted to frame somebody - I would

&gt; get the serial number of their gun - registered to them - find a

&gt; duplicate and change to their SN.&nbsp; I would then leave it at the scene</span></b></pre>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; If I may.

&gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; available. Some were even

&gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.</span></b></pre>

The<br>
&gt; clips/chargers can be inserted in the magazine from either end and<br>
&gt; they can be used over and over, and, remember without the clips/<br>
&gt; chargers you have a single shot rifle!<br>
&gt; However, when the last cartridge is chambered your clip may emerge,<br>
&gt; and MIGHT even drop, out of the magazine and it may not. You are then<br>
&gt; ready to reload. Reloaded clips are not reliable to perform as Charles<br>
&gt; H.Yust,Jr described the original factory loaded clips.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; The HSCA firearms panel seemed not to be interested in this<br>
&gt; phenomenon, since it did not test the clip under firing conditions.<br>
&gt; Congressman Edgar learned about the defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked<br>
&gt; for details about their firing test:<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber<br>
&gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the<br>
&gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then<br>
&gt; firing into it, in order to recover the<br>
&gt; projectile. ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using<br>
&gt; the clip, were you?<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to<br>
&gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time<br>
&gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel<br>
&gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets<br>
&gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests<br>
&gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]<br>
&gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The<br>
&gt; cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected<br>
&gt; without being fired. When the last cartridge was chambered, the<br>
&gt; cartridge clip remained in the magazine instead of falling out as it<br>
&gt; is designed to do.&quot;16 Given Mr. Lutz's &quot;the clip many times will open<br>
&gt; up&quot; statement, this result demands further explanation.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &quot;Many times will&quot; also means &quot;many times won't.&quot; Metal expands when<br>
&gt; heated and can alter its shape. But during the HSCA tests of the<br>
&gt; loading mechanism, the rifle should have been cool. In addition, CE<br>
&gt; 541 (3), a photograph of the clip stuck in the magazine reproduced on<br>
&gt; page 83 of the Warren Report, shows it in a cool rifle. Surely the<br>
&gt; rifle had not been fired for some time before that photography<br>
&gt; session. Is Lutz suggesting that the clip's sides spring out when<br>
&gt; cool<br>
&gt; and then return to a normal shape in the heat of firing? If such a<br>
&gt; violation of the laws of physics occurs with this rifle and clip, how<br>
&gt; then could the rifle have &quot;contained a clip&quot; when found?<br>

&gt; ---- PHYSICAL EVIDENCE / The Rifle<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; That said, there is definite suspicion that the weapon used was not<br>
&gt; the one LHO bought in the spring of 1963 to kill Walker with. It is<br>
&gt; suspected that a second rifle was purchased and the serial number was<br>
&gt; changed to C-2766 to frame the rabbit, Oswald.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; That rifle, now in the National Archives, has had the serial number<br>
&gt; changed to C-2766 in order to frame the rabbit. Someday someone will<br>
&gt; prove that point. We are talking about two different weapons.&nbsp; Ask any<br>
&gt; good gunsmith how easy that would be to change a serial number.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; A strong argument can be made that the murder weapon was not the<br>
&gt; weapon Lee bought in March to kill Gen. Walker with. The strange thing<br>
&gt; is that they both had the same serial number ;which was the thing that<br>
&gt; connected LHO to ownership. But, anyone familiar with the weapon knows<br>
&gt; that the serial number is on the rear end of the barrel where the<br>
&gt; barrel screws into the receiver. It can be removed in minutes and the<br>
&gt; serial number can be changed&nbsp; very easily. Ask any good gunsmith.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; From Martha Moyer, well known to the JFK assassination community.:<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &quot;Do you know how easy it is to change a SN on a rifle?&nbsp; I do!!! About<br>
&gt; six months ago I considered having the SN on my MC changed to read<br>
&gt; C2766. The gunsmith told me &quot;no problem - in fact, quite simple&quot; (Oh,<br>
&gt; by the way, my MC is a 36&quot;) If I wanted to frame somebody - I would<br>
&gt; get the serial number of their gun - registered to them - find a<br>
&gt; duplicate and change to their SN.&nbsp; I would then leave it at the scene<br>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &quot;wrong&quot;???&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; bet????</span></b></pre>

(Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">Mr. 
Eisenberg.<br>
Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Does the ammunition come in the clip?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this<br>
rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a<br>
result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,<br>
and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily<br>
part of the same shipment.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you<br>
receive a clip with that rifle?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
No, sir.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to<br>
shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the<br>
clip later?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Is it commonly available?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
Can you use that rifle without the clip?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes; you can.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
What is the advantage of the clip?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one<br>
shot at a time.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir; one shot at a time.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with<br>
the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
The same as the .30-06?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<br>

&gt; The

&gt;

&gt;

&gt;

&gt; &gt; clips/chargers can be inserted in the magazine from either end and

&gt; &gt; they can be used over and over, and, remember without the clips/

&gt; &gt; chargers you have a single shot rifle!

&gt; &gt; However, when the last cartridge is chambered your clip may emerge,

&gt; &gt; and MIGHT even drop, out of the magazine and it may not. You are then

&gt; &gt; ready to reload. Reloaded clips are not reliable to perform as Charles

&gt; &gt; H.Yust,Jr described the original factory loaded clips.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; The HSCA firearms panel seemed not to be interested in this

&gt; &gt; phenomenon, since it did not test the clip under firing conditions.

&gt; &gt; Congressman Edgar learned about the defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked

&gt; &gt; for details about their firing test:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber

&gt; &gt; and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the

&gt; &gt; box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then

&gt; &gt; firing into it, in order to recover the

&gt; &gt; projectile. ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using

&gt; &gt; the clip, were you?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; ******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; **** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; ***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to

&gt; &gt; identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time

&gt; &gt; firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel

&gt; &gt; Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets

&gt; &gt; were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests

&gt; &gt; were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]

&gt; &gt; cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The

&gt; &gt; cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected

&gt; &gt; without being fired. When the last cartridge was chambered, the

&gt; &gt; cartridge clip remained in the magazine instead of falling out as it

&gt; &gt; is designed to do.&quot;16 Given Mr. Lutz's &quot;the clip many times will open

&gt; &gt; up&quot; statement, this result demands further explanation.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &quot;Many times will&quot; also means &quot;many times won't.&quot; Metal expands when

&gt; &gt; heated and can alter its shape. But during the HSCA tests of the

&gt; &gt; loading mechanism, the rifle should have been cool. In addition, CE

&gt; &gt; 541 (3), a photograph of the clip stuck in the magazine reproduced on

&gt; &gt; page 83 of the Warren Report, shows it in a cool rifle. Surely the

&gt; &gt; rifle had not been fired for some time before that photography

&gt; &gt; session. Is Lutz suggesting that the clip's sides spring out when

&gt; &gt; cool

&gt; &gt; and then return to a normal shape in the heat of firing? If such a

&gt; &gt; violation of the laws of physics occurs with this rifle and clip, how

&gt; &gt; then could the rifle have &quot;contained a clip&quot; when found?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; ---- PHYSICAL EVIDENCE / The Rifle

&gt;

&gt; &gt; That said, there is definite suspicion that the weapon used was not

&gt; &gt; the one LHO bought in the spring of 1963 to kill Walker with. It is

&gt; &gt; suspected that a second rifle was purchased and the serial number was

&gt; &gt; changed to C-2766 to frame the rabbit, Oswald.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; That rifle, now in the National Archives, has had the serial number

&gt; &gt; changed to C-2766 in order to frame the rabbit. Someday someone will

&gt; &gt; prove that point. We are talking about two different weapons.&nbsp; Ask any

&gt; &gt; good gunsmith how easy that would be to change a serial number.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; A strong argument can be made that the murder weapon was not the

&gt; &gt; weapon

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; &gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &gt; &quot;wrong&quot;???&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; &gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; &gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; &gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; &gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; &gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; &gt; bet????

&gt;

&gt; (Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Does the ammunition come in the clip?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this

&gt; rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a

&gt; result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,

&gt; and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily

&gt; part of the same shipment.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you

&gt; receive a clip with that rifle?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; No, sir.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to

&gt; shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the

&gt; clip later?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Is it commonly available?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; Can you use that rifle without the clip?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes; you can.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; What is the advantage of the clip?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one

&gt; shot at a time.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir; one shot at a time.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with

&gt; the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; The same as the .30-06?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.</span></b></pre>

&gt;

&gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They

&gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti

&gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.

&gt; Thatís for another story.

&gt;

&gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm

&gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this

&gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case

&gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in

&gt; the magazine from either end.

&gt;

&gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the

&gt; clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.

&gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German

&gt; supervision at the end of the war.

Yes, sir; this weapon DOES NOT HAVE THE BOX MAGAZINE commonly found in<br>
most military weapons which holds the cartridges and can be re-loaded<br>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; &gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &gt; &quot;wrong&quot;???&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; &gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; &gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; &gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; &gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; &gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; &gt; bet????

&gt;

&gt; (Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)

&gt;

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Does the ammunition come in the clip?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this

&gt; rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a

&gt; result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,

&gt; and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily

&gt; part of the same shipment.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you

&gt; receive a clip with that rifle?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; No, sir.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to

&gt; shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the

&gt; clip later?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.

&gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; Is it commonly available?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; Can you use that rifle without the clip?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes; you can.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; What is the advantage of the clip?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one

&gt; shot at a time.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir; one shot at a time.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with

&gt; the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; The same as the .30-06?

&gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<a target="_blank" onmousedown="this.href='http://www.google.com/url?q\75http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jfk-assassination.de%2Fwarren%2Fwch%2Fvol3%2Fpage398.php\46sa\75D\46sntz\0751\46usg\75AFQjCNGxNqDcj5kknUlCDjp8U4J5vOjSxA';return true;" style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline; text-underline: single" href="http://www.jfk-assassination.de/warren/wch/vol3/page398.php">http://www.jfk-<wbr>assassination.de/warren/wch/<wbr>vol3/page398.php</a></span></b></pre>

&gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
&gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>

&gt; Thatís for another story.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>

&gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &gt; &gt; &quot;wrong&quot;???&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; &gt; &gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; &gt; &gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; &gt; &gt; bet????

&gt;

&gt; &gt; (Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Does the ammunition come in the clip?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this

&gt; &gt; rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a

&gt; &gt; result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,

&gt; &gt; and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily

&gt; &gt; part of the same shipment.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you

&gt; &gt; receive a clip with that rifle?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; No, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to

&gt; &gt; shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the

&gt; &gt; clip later?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Is it commonly available?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; Can you use that rifle without the clip?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes; you can.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; What is the advantage of the clip?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one

&gt; &gt; shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir; one shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with

&gt; &gt; the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; The same as the .30-06?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<a target="_blank" onmousedown="this.href='http://www.google.com/url?q\75http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jfk-assassination.de%2Fwarren%2Fwch%2Fvol3%2Fpage398.php\46sa\75D\46sntz\0751\46usg\75AFQjCNGxNqDcj5kknUlCDjp8U4J5vOjSxA';return true;" style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline; text-underline: single" href="http://www.jfk-assassination.de/warren/wch/vol3/page398.php">http://www.jfk-<wbr>assassination.de/warren/wch/<wbr>vol3/page398.php</a>

&gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They

&gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti

&gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.

&gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm

&gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this

&gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case

&gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in

&gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the

&gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.

&gt; &gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German

&gt; &gt; supervision at the end of the war.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &gt; &gt; &quot;wrong&quot;???&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; &gt; &gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; &gt; &gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; &gt; &gt; bet????

&gt;

&gt; &gt; (Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)

&gt;

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Does the ammunition come in the clip?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this

&gt; &gt; rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a

&gt; &gt; result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,

&gt; &gt; and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily

&gt; &gt; part of the same shipment.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you

&gt; &gt; receive a clip with that rifle?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; No, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to

&gt; &gt; shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the

&gt; &gt; clip later?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; Is it commonly available?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; Can you use that rifle without the clip?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes; you can.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; What is the advantage of the clip?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one

&gt; &gt; shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir; one shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with

&gt; &gt; the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; The same as the .30-06?

&gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<a target="_blank" onmousedown="this.href='http://www.google.com/url?q\75http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jfk-assassination.de%2Fwarren%2Fwch%2Fvol3%2Fpage398.php\46sa\75D\46sntz\0751\46usg\75AFQjCNGxNqDcj5kknUlCDjp8U4J5vOjSxA';return true;" style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline; text-underline: single" href="http://www.jfk-assassination.de/warren/wch/vol3/page398.php">http://www.jfk-<wbr>assassination.de/warren/wch/<wbr>vol3/page398.php</a>

&gt; A lie posted by an &quot;expert&quot; is still a lie.....&nbsp;&nbsp; &quot;Experts&quot;.... are

&gt; not infallible....&nbsp; Simply because a physician may be an excallent

&gt; general pactioner he may not be an &quot;expert&quot; on diseases of the

&gt; lungs.&nbsp;&nbsp; So simply because you cite an &quot;expert&quot; does NOT mean he's

&gt; correct in this case.&nbsp;&nbsp; I ask you again....HOW MUCH WOULD YOU LIKE TO

&gt; BET??</span></b></pre>

Hey Raymond .....Your trolling has won you a challenge.... How much<br>
would you like to bet that the Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be loaded by<br>
simply dropping a cartridge into the firing chamber and closing the<br>
bolt???&nbsp;&nbsp; In other words it cannot be fired as a &quot;single shot&quot;<br>
rifle.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Do you lack the guts to put some money behind your claim??</span></b></p>
<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none"><br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
&gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
&gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
&gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
&gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
&gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
&gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
&gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
&gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.<br>
&gt; &gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
&gt; &gt; supervision at the end of the war.<br>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; to.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &quot;wrong&quot;??? &nbsp;&nbsp;I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; bet????

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; (Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Does the ammunition come in the clip?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this

&gt; &gt; &gt; rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a

&gt; &gt; &gt; result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,

&gt; &gt; &gt; and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily

&gt; &gt; &gt; part of the same shipment.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you

&gt; &gt; &gt; receive a clip with that rifle?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; No, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to

&gt; &gt; &gt; shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the

&gt; &gt; &gt; clip later?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Is it commonly available?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Can you use that rifle without the clip?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Yes; you can.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; What is the advantage of the clip?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one

&gt; &gt; &gt; shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir; one shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with

&gt; &gt; &gt; the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; The same as the .30-06?

&gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<a target="_blank" onmousedown="this.href='http://www.google.com/url?q\75http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jfk-assassination.de%2Fwarren%2Fwch%2Fvol3%2Fpage398.php\46sa\75D\46sntz\0751\46usg\75AFQjCNGxNqDcj5kknUlCDjp8U4J5vOjSxA';return true;" style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline; text-underline: single" href="http://www.jfk-assassination.de/warren/wch/vol3/page398.php">http://www.jfk-<wbr>assassination.de/warren/wch/<wbr>vol3/page398.php</a>

Can you tell me if six &quot;firecrackers&quot; will fit in the SMI clip Lee<br>

Maybe that noise some of the witnesses heard and thought it was a<br>

And do you think Capt. Fritz switched the firecracker that was in the<br>
rifle with a Western round?<br>
Let us know please.<br>

&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.<br>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; live round in the clip was chambered.&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; So far so good.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They said Oswald had FOUR

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;&nbsp; 

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Were they?? Think Walt, think!&nbsp; The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; two!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; IF there were three

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; after that third spent shell was ejected&nbsp; would have stripped the last

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that time.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND!&nbsp; So you are

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; CROCK!!!.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; remember?&nbsp; Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT!&nbsp; NONE!&nbsp; There is NO

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; is NO inventory number for the clip!&nbsp; Sylvia Meagher showed years ago

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; evidence.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; If I may.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs&nbsp; at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; start.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; problem with the clip.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; According to both of them:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; some rifles does not.&quot;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; -- Anthony Marsh

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and clip were retained.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; available. Some were even

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and a round was found in the chamber. The

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chamber.&nbsp; IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; WRONG.&nbsp; It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested.

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &quot;wrong&quot;???&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; chamber without using a clip&nbsp; I lose, but if you can't close the bolt

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and fire the rifle then you lose.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now how much would you like to

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; bet????

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; (Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Does the ammunition come in the clip?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; part of the same shipment.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; receive a clip with that rifle?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; No, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clip later?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Eisenberg.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Is it commonly available?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Can you use that rifle without the clip?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Yes; you can.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; What is the advantage of the clip?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir; one shot at a time.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Mccloy.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The same as the .30-06?

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Mr. Frazier.

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<a target="_blank" onmousedown="this.href='http://www.google.com/url?q\75http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jfk-assassination.de%2Fwarren%2Fwch%2Fvol3%2Fpage398.php\46sa\75D\46sntz\0751\46usg\75AFQjCNGxNqDcj5kknUlCDjp8U4J5vOjSxA';return true;" style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline; text-underline: single" href="http://www.jfk-assassination.de/warren/wch/vol3/page398.php">http://www.jfk-<wbr>assassination.de/warren/wch/<wbr>vol3/page398.php</a>

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; I'll ask you again.... HOW MUCH WOULD YOU LIKE TO BET???

&gt;

&gt; &gt; &gt; A lie posted by an &quot;expert&quot; is still a lie.....&nbsp;&nbsp; &quot;Experts&quot;.... are

&gt; &gt; &gt; not infallible....&nbsp; Simply because a physician may be an excallent

&gt; &gt; &gt; general pactioner he may not be an &quot;expert&quot; on diseases of the

&gt; &gt; &gt; lungs.&nbsp;&nbsp; So simply because you cite an &quot;expert&quot; does NOT mean he's

&gt; &gt; &gt; correct in this case.&nbsp;&nbsp; I ask you again....HOW MUCH WOULD YOU LIKE TO

&gt; &gt; &gt; BET??

&gt; &gt;Pardon me, Raymond.... I'm sure you'll excuse me if I don't believe

&gt; &gt;that Oswald shot &quot;AT&quot; Walker.....&nbsp; Do you have PROOF that Oswald shot

&gt; &gt;&quot;AT&quot; Walker??

&gt; &gt;The evidence revealed a bullet hole in Walker's window so it's obvious

&gt; &gt;that a bullet was fired into Walker HOUSE.... But WHERE?? was Walker

&gt; &gt;at the time??

&gt; &gt;Do you have PROOF that Lee Oswald was the person who fired that

&gt; &gt;rifle??&nbsp;&nbsp; Do you have PROOF that he was alone in that alley behind

&gt; &gt;Walker's House??

&gt; &gt;When was that bullet fired through walker's Window??&nbsp; Could it have

&gt; &gt;been fired during the day and then later that night a firecracker was

&gt; &gt;set off to sound like a single gunshot??

&gt; &gt;Walker claimed that he just sat there behind his desk for a time after

&gt; &gt;the sound of the &quot;shot&quot; so if the shooter was firing a Mannlicher

&gt; &gt;Carcano he could have fired FIVE more times and INSURED that walker

&gt; &gt;had been hit if that was his INTENTION.&nbsp; Was the reason that there was

&gt; &gt;only a single shot because that &quot;shot&quot; was actually a firecracker??

&gt; &gt;Walt

&gt;

&gt; Dear Walt

&gt; Can you tell me if six &quot;firecrackers&quot; will fit in the SMI clip Lee

&gt; used in his MC?

&gt; Maybe that noise some of the witnesses heard and thought it was a

&gt; firecracker were correct.

&gt; And do you think Capt. Fritz switched the firecracker that was in the

&gt; rifle with a Western round?

&gt; Let us know please.

<p><b><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; font-family: Arial; display: none">It 
appears that you do lack the guts to bet any money on your claim<br>
that the MC can be fired as a &quot;single shot&quot; rifle.&nbsp; You may not be<br>
smart enough to know that your evasion of the issue is tantamount to<br>
admitting that you KNOW the rifle cannot be fired as a single shot<br>
rifle but lack the guts to admit it openly.</span></b></p>

&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
&gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; supervision at the end of the war.<br>

&quot;Something else to consider with regard to the Mannlicher Carcano clip is the fact that it is designed to hold 6 bullets. Since only 3 spent shells and 1 live round were apparently found at the scene it is logical to assume that if there was a clip it only contained 4 bullets at the time the shooting occurred. This is problematic because when a Carcano clip is underloaded the bullets have a strong tendency to fall over making it impossible to load and shoot them properly.&quot; 

<br>
MUST ONE HAVE 6 CARTRIDGES IN-THE-CLIP, IN-THE-WELL TO CYCLE THE M-C BOLT?</span></b></pre>

The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue<br>
The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)<br>
appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo<br>
and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:<br>
<br>
ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano<br>
rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6<br>
cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -<br>
plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and<br>
then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from<br>
top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered<br>
during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when<br>
Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine<br>
and clip were retained.<br>
<br>
The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out<br>
when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were<br>
made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not<br>
available. Some were even homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon<br>
when found. It was empty and a round was found in the chamber. The<br>
clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been<br>
emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably<br>
because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian<br>
ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the<br>
world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.<br>
<br>
------------------------------<br>
There are various photographs of one of the police detectives carrying<br>
the rifle out the front door of the book building. From several<br>
views, one can see an empty clip working its way down out of the clip<br>
exit. After firing, it was gravity that made it drop out. Sometimes<br>
It does, sometimes it does not. In fact, opne of the foremost<br>
collectors of military rifle clips (named Uust, I think) stated in the<br>
American rifleman that the empty Mannlicher-Carcano clip did not come<br>
out until a fresh<br>
loaded clip was introduced into the magazine from the top.<br>
<br>
It has been my experience, however, that this is only sometimes<br>
the case. Sometimes they drop out on their own; sometimes they do<br>
not.<br>
<br>
As has been pointed out by many diligent researchers, the ''clip<br>
issue'' is a ''non-issue.''<br>
John in VA<br>
---------------<br>
P.S. &quot;The rifle (CE 139)was test-fired by all panel members using 6.5<br>
millimeter caliber ammunition of Western cartridge Co. manufacture.<br>
Two bullets were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank.<br>
Further tests were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE<br>
375 cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle.<br>
The cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected<br>
without being fired. WHEN THE LAST CARTRIDGE WAS CHAMBERED, THE<br>
CARTRIDGE CLIP REMAINED IN THE MAGAZINE INSTEAD OF FALLING OUT AS IT<br>
WAS DESIGNED TO DO.&quot;<br>
<br>
Even those testing the rifle expected the clip to fall out since,<br>
by the time of testing , the word was out that the clip was supposed<br>
to fall out of the magazine after the last round was chambered.<br>

The clip usually falls out, but in some rifles does not.<br>

More on the Carcano:<br>
Let us go through the steps required to use your rifle. Firstly the<br>
ammunition you have available is either Norma 6.5 Carcano or you have<br>
skillfully shortened some 6.5 M-S (Mannlicher-Schoenauer) cases 2mm so<br>
they are identical to the factory Norma stuff. Fill your charger/clip<br>
(NOT stripper clip, please) with six cartridges. Lift and draw the<br>
bolt fully to the rear. You will see the gaping opening of the<br>
magazine well looking up at you. Insert your clip into the opening<br>
downward until it locks into place. Push the bolt forward and turn it<br>
down. This will chamber a cartridge and the firearm is ready to fire.<br>
Your rifle may have a long trigger pull but it will probably be a two<br>
stage trigger, most European military rifles have that. It means that<br>
when you squeeze your trigger it will reach a point where there is<br>
resistance to the pressure. That is you second stage. Squeezing a<br>
little more will fire the rifle. The rifle fires! Recoil is minimal.<br>
You can smell the burning powder and life is good. Lift your bolt<br>
handle and pull it gently/slowly to the rear. Your fired cartridge<br>
case will emerge from the chamber and you pluck it out of the action<br>
before it gets lost. Now is the time to have a look at it and see if<br>
there is anything to be concerned about. Repeat the above procedures<br>
and fire all six cartridges in your clip/charger. When the last<br>
cartridge is chambered your clip will emerge, and MIGHT even drop, out<br>
of the magazine. You are ready to reload.<br>
<br>
The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
Thatís for another story.<br>
<br>
For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
the magazine from either end.<br>
<br>
Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
clips/chargers you have a single shot rifle!<br>
<br>
Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
supervision at the end of the war. These are definitely Ďno firingí<br>
statement rifles for the reasons mentioned earlier.<br>
<br>
I donít like to fire them for the same reason I donít like root-canal<br>
work. They are just plain awful noise and recoil-wise with the full<br>
military loads. No fun here!<br>
<br>
You are advised to play with these using mild cast bullet loads. They<br>
can be made to shoot very well with these projectiles and you donít<br>
come away from the bench a gibbering shell-shocked shooter. These<br>
rifles also used a Carcano type clip/charger, but five shot only as<br>
the body diameter of the eight mil is larger than the 6.5/7.35<br>
cartridges. Good luck finding the clips. I believe there are some in<br>
Italy, but I have only seen photos of them.<br>

The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless there is a<br>
clip available and used to load the cartridge into the chamber. IT<br>
CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!<br>
<br>
The clip was DESIGNED to FALL OUT of the bottom of the rifle when the<br>
last round is stripped from the clip by the forward stroke of the bolt<br>
when chambering that last cartridge. When that last cartridge is<br>
stripped from the clip there is NOTHING to hold the clip in the rifle<br>
and it drops out. Under battlefield conditions when the ejection port<br>
may get dirt or mud in it, which would prevent the light weight clip<br>
from dropping out, the empty clip can then easily be pushed out of the<br>
bottom of the rifle by inserting a fresh full clip of six<br>
cartridges.<br>
<br>
The FACT that the clip was in the rifle when it was found BURIED and<br>
HIDDEN beneath boxes of books is a rock solid indicator that the rifle<br>
was prepared as a &quot;throw down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. It was<br>
prepared as a throw down gun and hidden beneath those boxes of books<br>
BEFORE the shooting by someone who wasn't totally famliar with the<br>
rifle. He apparently did not know that the rifle CANNOT be loaded as a<br>
single shot rifle, and attempted to load the live round into the<br>
chamber by hand, and the close the bolt, only to jamb the bolt in the<br>
manner it is seen in the photos of the rifle being lifted from the<br>
place he had hid it.<br>
<br>
<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
&gt; supervision at the end of the war. These are definitely Ďno firingí<br>
&gt; statement rifles for the reasons mentioned earlier.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I donít like to fire them for the same reason I donít like root-canal<br>
&gt; work. They are just plain awful noise and recoil-wise with the full<br>
&gt; military loads. No fun here!<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; You are advised to play with these using mild cast bullet loads. They<br>
&gt; can be made to shoot very well with these projectiles and you donít<br>
&gt; come away from the bench a gibbering shell-shocked shooter. These<br>
&gt; rifles also used a Carcano type clip/charger, but five shot only as<br>
&gt; the body diameter of the eight mil is larger than the 6.5/7.35<br>
&gt; cartridges. Good luck finding the clips. I believe there are some in<br>
&gt; Italy, but I have only seen photos of them.<br>

CBS News, which claimed to &quot;duplicate the conditions of the actual<br>
assassination&quot; in its filmed rifle test in 1967:<br>
<br>
The cartridge clip was removed from CE-139 by Lieutenant Day of the<br>
Dallas Police Department on November 22, 1963 at the crime laboratory<br>
for the police department. Shouldn't a clip automatically fall out<br>
once the last cartridge has fed into the chamber?<br>
<br>
Mr. Lutz. This rifle is designed to incorporate that feature so that<br>
the last cartridge is stripped out of the clip, then that allows the<br>
clip itself to fall or to drop from the opening that you see in the<br>
bottom of the box magazine. However, in many cases, and in this<br>
particular case, where we functioned the rifle, fed cartridges through<br>
it, we found this clip to stay in the rifle after the last round had<br>
been stripped and fed into the chamber. Because the lips or the edges<br>
of the clip many times will open up, they will spring against the<br>
walls on the inside of the box magazine and it will hang up in that<br>
areaa [sic], and even though it is supposed to drop out, many times it<br>
will hang up in the box area.11<br>
<br>
That explanation seems reasonable enough. BUT IT IS NOT. It is true<br>
that the clip must be deformed to have any chance of getting as stuck<br>
as this one. But once bent, it stays bent. Commission Exhibits (CEs)<br>
574 and 575 are photographs of the alleged clip in its normal, unbent<br>
condition. And five years after the HSCA reported the clip deformed,<br>
Life magazine photographer Michael O'Neill photographed it in normal<br>
condition for Life's November 1983 issue.12<br>
<br>
According to reporter Dan Rather, &quot;Eleven volunteer marksmen took<br>
turns firing clips of three bullets each at the moving target.&quot; They<br>
fired a total of thirty-seven three-round series, seventeen of which<br>
resulted in unfired bullets due to &quot;trouble with the rifle.&quot; Clip<br>
problems or not, all data from those seventeen troubled series was<br>
disregarded by CBS analysts. It was the other series of shots,<br>
however, with properly emptied and ejected clips, deemed worthy of<br>
analysis by CBS, that should have been disqualified. In the CBS film,<br>
clips can be seen flying out of the gun so fast as to be a blur.14 If<br>
a test clip is not bent, or ejects, or moves at all, Oswald's alleged<br>
feat is not duplicated, invalidating the test. The HSCA firearms panel<br>
seemed not to be interested in this phenomenon, since it did not test<br>
the clip under firing conditions. Congressman Edgar learned about the<br>
defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked for details about their firing<br>
test:<br>
<br>
Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber<br>
and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the<br>
box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then<br>
firing into it, in order to recover the projectile.<br>
******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using the clip,<br>
were you?<br>
<br>
******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.<br>
<br>
**** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?<br>
<br>
***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.<br>
<br>
Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?<br>
<br>
Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to<br>
identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time<br>
firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.15<br>
<br>
Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel<br>
Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets<br>
<br>
<br>
were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests<br>
<br>
were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]<br>
<br>
cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The<br>
cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected<br>
<br>
without being fired. When the last cartridge was chambered, the<br>
cartridge clip remained in the magazine instead of falling out as it<br>
is designed to do.&quot;16 Given Mr. Lutz's &quot;the clip many times will open<br>
up&quot; statement, this result demands further explanation.<br>
&quot;Many times will&quot; also means &quot;many times won't.&quot; Metal expands when<br>
heated and can alter its shape. But during the HSCA tests of the<br>
loading mechanism, the rifle should have been cool. In addition, CE<br>
541 (3), a photograph of the clip stuck in the magazine reproduced on<br>
page 83 of the Warren Report, shows it in a cool rifle. Surely the<br>
rifle had not been fired for some time before that photography<br>
session. Is Lutz suggesting that the clip's sides spring out when cool<br>
and then return to a normal shape in the heat of firing? If such a<br>
violation of the laws of physics occurs with this rifle and clip, how<br>
then could the rifle have &quot;contained a clip&quot; when found?<br>

Raymond you can believe whoever and whatever you choose to<br>
believe.....But keep in mind that those who claim the clip does not<br>
fall out of the rifle when the last cartridge is chambered have some<br>
ulterior motive telling that lie. I guarantee you that the clip DOES<br>
fall out of the rifle when the last cartridge is chambered. Since<br>
this is a FACT that clip should have been found in the so called<br>
&quot;Sniper's Nest&quot; where according to the Warren Commission's THEORY<br>
Oswald chambered that last round. ( What a CROCK!!!)<br>

THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald<br>
fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires<br>
that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final<br>
live round in the clip was chambered. They said Oswald had FOUR<br>
cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells<br>
were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot; IF there were three<br>
spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER<br>
the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt<br>
after that third spent shell was ejected would have stripped the last<br>
cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at<br>
that time.<br>
<br>
BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a<br>
CROCK!!!.<br>
<br>
What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw<br>
down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and<br>
hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the<br>
rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the<br>
chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in<br>
the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.<br>

&gt; &gt; IF you believe this why do you believe a CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE<br>
&gt; &gt; Walt?? YOU make NO sense at all<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; THINK!!!.... I said the authorities... THEORIZED.. that Lee Oswald<br>
&gt; fired that MC from the so called &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot;. That THEORY requires<br>
&gt; that the clip had to have been ejected from the rifle when the final<br>
&gt; live round in the clip was chambered. <br>
<br>
So far so good.<br>
<br>
<br>
&gt; They said Oswald had FOUR<br>
&gt; cartridges, and he fired three of them, and the three spent shells<br>
&gt; were found in the make believe &quot;Sniper's Nest&quot; <br>
<br>
Were they?? Think Walt, think! The OFFICIAL evidence photo shows ONLY<br>
two!<br>
<br>
<br>
&gt; IF there were three<br>
&gt; spent rounds found in the SN then that means the bolt was opened AFTER<br>
&gt; the third round was fired. The reflex action of closing of the bolt<br>
&gt; after that third spent shell was ejected would have stripped the last<br>
&gt; cartridge from the clip and the clip would have fallen on the floor at<br>
&gt; that time.<br>
<br>
I agree with this Walt, YOU are the ONE that has argued with me that<br>
the CLIP WAS INSIDE THE RIFLE WHEN IT WAS FOUND! So you are<br>
contridicted yourself here, but you are right here!<br>
<br>
<br>
&gt; BUT the clip was NOT on the floor...which means the whole theory is a<br>
&gt; CROCK!!!.<br>
<br>
Perhaps there was NO clip Walt as YOU have said it was a prop gun,<br>
remember? Why do you need a clip for a prop gun?<br>
<br>
<br>
&gt; What actually happened is:.... The rifle was prepared as a &quot;throw<br>
&gt; down&quot; gun BEFORE the shooting. The numbskull who prepared the gun and<br>
&gt; hid it beneath those boxes of books wasn't very familiar with the<br>
&gt; rile, and when he attempted to load a single live round into the<br>
&gt; chambered he jammed the bolt in trying, he then inserted the clip in<br>
&gt; the magazine and hid the rifle beneath those boxes of books.<br>
<br>
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY WALT! NONE! There is NO<br>
mention of a clip by anyone, there are NO photographs of the clip<br>
until they took the rifle out of the TSBD 30 minutes later, and there<br>
is NO inventory number for the clip! Sylvia Meagher showed years ago<br>
there is NO mention of the clip anywhere in the 26 volumes of<br>
evidence.<br>
<br>
How do you explain this IF it was inside the rifle when they found it?<br>

If I may.<br>
There is no problem with the fact that the weapon found in the TSBD<br>
was the murder weapon and there was a clip in it when it was found.<br>
This clip issue is really a non issue. The police were amateurs at<br>
police work and did many things wrong which caused problems from the<br>
start.<br>
<br>
According to two Italian immigrant men who served in the Italian army<br>
and were familiar with the Carcano 6.5 . I worked with them at<br>
Republic Steel and asked them , after the Dallas event, about the<br>
operation of the MC: They were surprised to hear that there was a<br>
problem with the clip.<br>
<br>
According to both of them:<br>
<br>
MC ammunition from Italian factories and in factory sealed clips did<br>
not fall out of the rifle when the last round was chambered. A soldier<br>
carried a cloth sack with extra clips and when the last round was<br>
chambered, he had to inject a new clip into the magazine from the top<br>
and the old clip then fell out and was not used again. The<br>
battlefields wer littered with empty clips. After the war and as<br>
original factory loaded clips were used up, old clips were being used<br>
with either Norma ammunition or Western ammo such as was used in<br>
Dallas. Some clips were even homemade. It was these used and homemade<br>
clips that were unreliable and sometimes they fell out on their own or<br>
hung up in the magazine well and some performed as they were intended<br>
to.<br>
<br>
The Mannlicher Carcano clip issue &quot;The clip usually falls out, but in<br>
<br>
<br>
some rifles does not.&quot;<br>
-- Anthony Marsh<br>
<br>
The article, written by Charles H.Yust,Jr. (Some Interesting Clips)<br>
<br>
<br>
appeared in the June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47, a photo<br>
and description of the clip operation appears. As follows:<br>
<br>
<br>
ITALY- Clip for Model 1891 6.5 mm. Mannlicher Carcano<br>
rifle and carbine employing Mannlicher-type magazine. Holds 6<br>
cartridges. Made of brass and tinned, blued.Parkerized and cadmium -<br>
plated steel, clip is held in magazine until last round is used, and<br>
then PUSHED OUT BOTTOM of magazine when new clip is forced in from<br>
top. Clip was also used with Vetterli rifles and carbines altered<br>
during World War 1 to 6.5 mm Mannlicher-type magazine. In 1938, when<br>
Italy increased caliber of rifle and carbine to 7.35 mm.,same magazine<br>
and clip were retained.<br>
<br>
<br>
The original factory filled clip (SMI) should not fall out<br>
when last round is chambered as reported. However, numerous clips were<br>
made to accommodate surplus ammo when an original Italian clip was not<br>
available. Some were even<br>
homemade. The Dallas clip was in the weapon when found. It was empty<br>
and a round was found in the chamber. The<br>
clip did not fall out. It was an original Italian clip which had been<br>
emptied at some point and refilled with the Western ammo. Probably<br>
because, by 1963, there were reports of misfires with the Italian<br>
ammo. If you are on a mission to kill the most powerful man in the<br>
world, I think it wise to use more reliable ammo.<br>
<br>
Charles H.Yust,Jr.was an expert on clips and his word was reliable.<br>
<br>
<br>
June 1960 issue of American Rifleman. On P.47,<br>
<br>
WALT says: The Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be used as a rifle unless<br>
<br>
<br>
there is a clip available and used to load the cartridge into the<br>
chamber. IT CANNOT BE USED AS A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE!!!<br>
<br>
WRONG. It was often used as a single shot weapon when tested. .The<br>
clips/chargers can be inserted in the magazine from either end and<br>
<br>
<br>
they can be used over and over, and, remember without the clips/<br>
chargers you have a single shot rifle!<br>
<br>
However, when the last cartridge is chambered your clip may emerge,<br>
and MIGHT even drop, out of the magazine and it may not. You are then<br>
ready to reload. Reloaded clips are not reliable to perform as Charles<br>
H.Yust,Jr described the original factory loaded clips.<br>
<br>
The HSCA firearms panel seemed not to be interested in this<br>
phenomenon, since it did not test the clip under firing conditions.<br>
Congressman Edgar learned about the defect from Mr. Lutz when he asked<br>
for details about their firing test:<br>
<br>
<br>
Mr. Lutz. This was a single cartridge being inserted into the chamber<br>
and firing into a cotton waste recovery box...backing away from the<br>
box, a foot or two, and pointing the muzzle into the box and then<br>
firing into it, in order to recover the<br>
projectile. ******Mr. Edgar. But you weren't firing with clip -- using<br>
the clip, were you?<br>
<br>
<br>
******Mr. Lutz. No sir; I did not.<br>
<br>
<br>
**** Mr. Edgar. Did anyone on the panel fire with the clip in?<br>
<br>
<br>
***** Mr. Lutz. I do not believe so; no, sir.<br>
<br>
<br>
Mr. Edgar. What was the reason for that?<br>
<br>
<br>
Mr. Lutz. There were no particular markings that we were able to<br>
identify as having come from the clip, nor were we checking for time<br>
firing or sequential firing in any way in that respect.<br>
<br>
Under the heading &quot;Findings and Conclusions of the Firearms Panel<br>
<br>
<br>
Concerning the Kennedy Assassination,&quot; we learn that, &quot;Two bullets<br>
were test-fired into a horizontal water recovery tank. Further tests<br>
were conducted by loading four cartridges into the CE 375 [sic]<br>
cartridge clip and inserting it into the magazine of the rifle. The<br>
<br>
<br>
cartridges were worked through the rifle's mechanism and ejected<br>
without being fired. When the last cartridge was chambered, the<br>
cartridge clip remained in the magazine instead of falling out as it<br>
is designed to do.&quot;16 Given Mr. Lutz's &quot;the clip many times will open<br>
up&quot; statement, this result demands further explanation.<br>
<br>
<br>
&quot;Many times will&quot; also means &quot;many times won't.&quot; Metal expands when<br>
heated and can alter its shape. But during the HSCA tests of the<br>
loading mechanism, the rifle should have been cool. In addition, CE<br>
541 (3), a photograph of the clip stuck in the magazine reproduced on<br>
page 83 of the Warren Report, shows it in a cool rifle. Surely the<br>
rifle had not been fired for some time before that photography<br>
session. Is Lutz suggesting that the clip's sides spring out when<br>
cool<br>
and then return to a normal shape in the heat of firing? If such a<br>
violation of the laws of physics occurs with this rifle and clip, how<br>
then could the rifle have &quot;contained a clip&quot; when found?<br>
<br>
<br>
---- PHYSICAL EVIDENCE / The Rifle<br>
<br>
That said, there is definite suspicion that the weapon used was not<br>
the one LHO bought in the spring of 1963 to kill Walker with. It is<br>
suspected that a second rifle was purchased and the serial number was<br>
changed to C-2766 to frame the rabbit, Oswald.<br>
<br>
That rifle, now in the National Archives, has had the serial number<br>
changed to C-2766 in order to frame the rabbit. Someday someone will<br>
prove that point. We are talking about two different weapons. Ask any<br>
good gunsmith how easy that would be to change a serial number.<br>
<br>
A strong argument can be made that the murder weapon was not the<br>
weapon Lee bought in March to kill Gen. Walker with. The strange thing<br>
is that they both had the same serial number ;which was the thing that<br>
connected LHO to ownership. But, anyone familiar with the weapon knows<br>
that the serial number is on the rear end of the barrel where the<br>
barrel screws into the receiver. It can be removed in minutes and the<br>
serial number can be changed very easily. Ask any good gunsmith.<br>
<br>
From Martha Moyer, well known to the JFK assassination community.:<br>
<br>
&quot;Do you know how easy it is to change a SN on a rifle? I do!!! About<br>
six months ago I considered having the SN on my MC changed to read<br>
C2766. The gunsmith told me &quot;no problem - in fact, quite simple&quot; (Oh,<br>
by the way, my MC is a 36&quot;) If I wanted to frame somebody - I would<br>
get the serial number of their gun - registered to them - find a<br>
duplicate and change to their SN. I would then leave it at the scene<br>
of the crime&quot;<br>
<br>
Martha Moyer<br>
<br>
Numerous weapons experts have compared the photos taken by Marina with<br>
photos of the murder weapon and agree that they are not the same<br>
weapon.<br>
<br>
The Second Carcano<br>
http://jfkresearch.freehomepage.com/c2766.html<br>
<br>
We must hopefully use absolute evidence when we can, evidence that<br>
could be used in a courtroom and there is really very little that<br>
could be used against Oswald. Working in the building where the shots<br>
came from is not enough and there is doubt that three shots even came<br>
from the building. It was the serial number that connected Oswald to<br>
the murder weapon<br>
<br>
There was no missed shot....?<br>
<br>
Despite the claims that there were three shots from the TSBD fired at<br>
the JFK limousine.... prove it... Where is the physical evidence? The<br>
three shell casings found under the sixth floor window? That won't do.<br>
Even the Warren Wizards weren't sure.<br>
SEE Page 110 and 111 of the Report to the President NUMBER OF SHOTS<br>
<br>
&quot;The consensus among the witnesses at the scene was that three shots<br>
were fired.332 However, some heard only two shots,333 while others<br>
testified that they heard four and perhaps as many as five or six<br>
shots.334 The difficulty of accurate perception of the sound of<br>
gunshots required careful scrutiny of all of this testimony regarding<br>
the number of shots. The firing of a bullet causes a number of noises:<br>
the muzzle blast, caused by the smashing of the hot gases which<br>
propel<br>
the bullet into the relatively stable air at the gun's muzzle; the<br>
noise of the bullet, caused by the shock wave built up ahead of the<br>
bullet's nose as it travels through the air; and the noise caused by<br>
the impact of the bullet on its target.335 Each noise can be quite<br>
sharp and may be perceived as a separate shot. The tall buildings in<br>
the area might have further distorted the sound.<br>
<br>
The physical and other evidence examined by the Commission compels the<br>
conclusion that AT LEAST TWO SHOTS WERE FIRED As discussed previously,<br>
the nearly whole bullet discovered at Parkland Hospital and the two<br>
larger fragments found in the Presidential automobile, which were<br>
identified as coming from the assassination rifle, came from at least<br>
two separate bullets and possibly from three.336 The most convincing<br>
evidence relating to the number of shots was provided by the presence<br>
on the sixth floor of three spent cartridges which were demonstrated<br>
to have been fired by the same rifle that fired the bullets which<br>
caused the wounds. It is POSSIBLE that the assassin carried an EMPTY<br>
SHELL in the rifle and fired only two shots, with the witnesses<br>
hearing multiple noises made by the same shot. Soon after the<br>
three ....Cont'd<br>
http://www.jfk-assassination.de/warren/wcr/page110.php<br>
<br>
Even Zapruder was not sure of the shot sequence:<br>
Mr. Liebeler.<br>
Let me go back now for just a moment and ask you how many shots you<br>
heard altogether.<br>
<br>
Mr. Zapruder.<br>
I thought I heard two, it could be three, because to my estimation I<br>
thought he was hit on the second--I really don't know. The whole thing<br>
that has been transpiring--it was very upsetting and as you see I got<br>
a little better all the time and this came up again and it to me<br>
looked like the second shot, but I don't know. I never even heard a<br>
third shot.<br>
<br>
And Tague thought the shots came from up on the hill:<br>
Mr. Tague.<br>
Well, I was standing there watching, and really I was watching to try<br>
to distinguish the President and his car. About this time I heard what<br>
sounded like a firecracker. Well, a very loud firecracker. It<br>
certainly didn't sound like a rifle shot. It was more of a loud<br>
cannon- type sound. I looked around to see who was throwing<br>
firecrackers or what was going on and I turned my head away from the<br>
motorcade and, of course, two more shots.<br>
<br>
And I ducked behind the post when I realized somebody was shooting<br>
after the third shot. After the third shot, I ducked behind the bridge<br>
abutment and was there for a second, and I glanced out and Just as I<br>
looked out, the car following the President's car, the one with the<br>
Secret Service men, was just flying past at that time.<br>
<br>
Summing up. One shot missed the car completely and there is no record<br>
of recovering any of its remains. One shot allegedly passed through<br>
Kennedy and Connally and magically remained near pristine and ended up<br>
at Parkland Hospital.<br>
<br>
This bullet weighed 161 grains before it was fired at the motorcade.<br>
When recovered it weighed 158.6 grains which means that very little<br>
was lost in its destructive journey.<br>
<br>
A fragment weighing 0.5 grains was recovered from Connally's arm.<br>
Audrey Bell, the operating nurse, stated that there were four or five<br>
fragments &quot;anywhere from three to four millimeters in length and a<br>
couple of millimeters wide. &quot; These fragments disappeared at the<br>
autopsy.<br>
<br>
In addition, what happened to the fragment found in Connally's leg<br>
wound? Also, there was a fragment in the governor's chest that was<br>
never recovered. He died with fragments still in his body that weighed<br>
more that the alleged two to three missing grains from C-399 that was<br>
described as near pristine. And the Warrens say , about pristine,<br>
&quot;The Governor's wrist wound WAS NOT CAUSED BY A PRISTINE BULLET.&quot; p.<br>
94<br>
<br>
So this leaves one bullet and it had to be the fatal projectile that<br>
removed part of the president's skull and much of his brains.<br>
<br>
After the coup, two bullet fragments were found in the Lincoln.<br>
According to Warren , the two fragments weighed 44.6 and 21.0 grains<br>
respectively.&quot;The heavier fragment was a portion of a bullet's nose<br>
area... the lighter fragment consisted of a bullet's base... the two<br>
fragments were both mutilated, and it was not possible to determine<br>
from the fragments themselves whether they comprised the base and nose<br>
of one bullet or of two separate bullets.&quot; WR<br>
<br>
If one bullet missed the car completely and one ended up at Parkland<br>
almost pristine, the last bullet logically would have to be the bullet<br>
that hit JFK in the head and both fragments were from the same<br>
projectile I disagree with this conclusion.<br>
<br>
I suspect that, with the angle of the neck shot, the above fragments<br>
would remain in the car, ergo,the remains of the single bullet , and<br>
the head shot bullet probably ended up in tiny bits in Dealey Plaza.<br>
<br>
Some say that Tague was hit by the first MISSED shot, but he heard<br>
shots before he was hit by a very tiny fragment. So, he was probably<br>
hit by a fragment from the third shot instead of the ALLEGED MISSED<br>
FIRST SHOT. He also thought that the shots came from the &quot;hill&quot;<br>
<br>
I personally do not believe there was a missed shot. If I were the<br>
master-mind of the murder, I would be sure to provide evidence that<br>
would assure the connection to the rifle and its owner. And since I<br>
could not rely on the future condition of the bullets actually fired<br>
at the occupants of the limousine, I would fire a bullet through the<br>
barrel of the murder weapon before 11-22-63 and be sure to leave it<br>
where it would be found. Enter the near pristine Parkland slug.<br>
<br>
And enter Jack Ruby and the Parkland slug.<br>
<br>
As Assistant. DA Alexander said, &quot;The single bullet is like the<br>
Immaculate Conception. Either you believe it or you don't.&quot;<br>
<br>

It would help to understand the foreign marking system.<br>
<br>
The Italian arms manufacturers used the same consecutive marking<br>
system that the Germans used for identification, serial numbers,<br>
manufacturing plant, etc..It began with a three digit serial number,<br>
progressed through the thousand numbers. Example: 000-9999, then began<br>
a prefix system. Example: A 111- A 9999. This progressed through the<br>
alphabet -A-Z and AA-ZZ, etc..This system can be better understood by<br>
looking at the serial numbers on the 100 rifles delivered to Klein's<br>
in Feb. 1963. See Warren-Waldman exhibit #4. It is almost certain ,<br>
since there were hundreds of thousands of rifles, many would have the<br>
same number, however the prefix would be different. The FBI did locate<br>
a rifle with the serial number 2766, while the LHO rifle was C-2766.<br>
<br>
The invoice of Empire Wholesale Sporting Goods, Limited ,in<br>
Montreal Canada, dated June 29, 1962, reflects the sale of 700 used<br>
Italian rifles to Century Arms of St. Albens, Vermont. Exhibit D 156<br>
was furnished by the owner of Century Arms on March 11, 1964 to the<br>
FBI.<br>
<br>
ORIGINAL LIST of serial numbers of 700 Carcano Italian carbines<br>
Received by Century Arms, Inc, from Empire: Serial number 2766 appears<br>
on last page of numbers (Exhibit D 103) See COMM. Exhibit No. 2562 #<br>
13 Warren Report It is almost impossible that two Carcanos would have<br>
identical serial numbers unless someone altered them. (which I<br>
suspect<br>
was done in Dallas to frame LHO)<br>
<br>
Meagher dealt with the 2766 serial number, but at the time, didn't<br>
understand the numbering system or the Canada connection.<br>
<br>
By the way, all serial numbers were not on the barrel. Some were on<br>
the receiver, and even on the stock, some on more than one place. John<br>
Cahill in VA has four Carcanos and two serial numbers are on the<br>
receiver, two on the barrel.<br>
<br>
There is so much to be explained about how and where the Carcanos<br>
were made that it could never be done on this forum. Guns marked Terni<br>
may not have been made there. They could have been made in a small<br>
plant elsewhere and called the Terni rifle. Some parts were made in<br>
small plants and assembled at Terni, thus the Terni name .<br>
<br>
Because the guns looked alike, (the 7.35 mm and the 6.5 mm ) the<br>
manufacturers stamped 7.35 on the stock so the troops knew what ammo<br>
to use.<br>
<br>
I often wondered why LHO did not buy his 6.5 ammo from Klein's.<br>
<br>
I believe that it was because of the warning in the coupon itself,<br>
and elsewhere in the full page Klein's ad.<br>
&quot;Handgun orders, and orders with ammo, are shipped express, charges<br>
collect.&quot;<br>
<br>
So, even if Lee had ordered ammo, at the same time he ordered the<br>
rifle, the items would have been shipped separately. Hand guns and<br>
ammunition were not shipped via U.S. Mail. This is why Seaport Traders<br>
shipped LHOs 38 to Railway Express on Houston Street. All the ads in<br>
the gun magazines advised the customer of that fact .I think I am<br>
right<br>
on the mail laws, but if not, SHUCKS!<br>
<br>
Hundreds of ads in the gun magazines advertised the ammo, and some<br>
even warned the user about the percentage of MIS-FIRES expected<br>
because of the age of the ammo.<br>
<br>
Walzer Arms Inc. of Elmwood, N.Y. advertised 6.5 and 7.35 Carcano<br>
ammo by the case of 1728 rounds for<br>
$51.28.AMERICAN RIFLEMAN 8-61.<br>
<br>
Lee worked within a stones throw of Green's Dept. Store where they<br>
sold both the rifle and the ammo.<br>
<br>
Hundreds of American gun dealers sold both the original Italian and<br>
Western ammo in both 7.35 mm and 6.5 mm.<br>
Century Arms Inc. of St. Albens, Vt. sold Western 6.5 mm in Factory<br>
Packed ctns. of 20 and in cases of 1000 rds. Price: $7.50 per 100 rds.<br>
and $60.00 per 1000 rds. (Ad, American Rifleman, 9-62, p.119).<br>
<br>
Walzer Arms of Elmford, NY sold 6.5 or 7.35 Italian M/C ammo by the<br>
case of 1728 rds. for $51.28. (Ad, American Rifleman, 8-61.)<br>
<br>
In the same Walzer ad was 6.5 Carcano Rifles (very good) $6.75 each<br>
in cases of 20. And, 6.5 Carcano Carbines (very good) $7.75 each in<br>
cases of 12.<br>
<br>
I have seen photocopies of documentation that it was part of four<br>
lots manufactured by WCC in 1954. It was, for military<br>
ammunition, a very small batch: 4 million rounds as I understand.<br>
<br>
There is much speculation about where it went--some say Greece..<br>
<br>
My best understanding is that part of the contract never left the<br>
U.S and that another part found its way back into the U.S.<br>
If true, then some of that ammo was sold on the U.S. surplus<br>
market illegally--as the aid laws forbade the reimportation and sale<br>
of stuff sent overseas. It may have come back in the country via<br>
Canada.<br>
<br>
The ammunition was advertised regularly in American Rifleman<br>
magazine beginning, I think, in late 1961, sold at a premium price,<br>
because it had non-corrosive primers.<br>
<br>
Several jobbers were selling it in case lots. I have the prices<br>
somewhere in my notes.<br>
<br>
The FBI found that only one or two gun shops in the Dallas area<br>
were selling the ammo. They interviewed one owner, a fellow named<br>
Masen, who said he had split a case lot with someone else. Masen<br>
denied to the FBI having sold any of the ammo to Oswald.<br>
<br>
That's about all I know off the top of my head.<br>
--- John in VA<br>
<br>
I can provide some information about the ammo used in Dallas.<br>
<br>
The ammo was made by Western Cartridge Company of East Alton,<br>
Illinois. It was bought by the Army for the CIA in 1954. It was<br>
secretly made for the Italian government for the use in the overthrow<br>
of the Communist government in Albania.<br>
<br>
The CIA operation failed and the ammo went into storage. Most of it<br>
was later used in the Cuban Bay of Pigs fiasco. What was remaining was<br>
released into the American surplus market(reported about 2 million<br>
rounds).<br>
<br>
Originally, the Army received about 4 million rounds from Western<br>
in lots 6000, 6001, 6002 and 6003. The Dallas ammo came from Lot<br>
#6002.<br>
<br>
An FBI memorandum, dated Dec. 1963 reads, &quot;... does not fit and<br>
cannot be fired in any of the Marine Corps weapons.&quot;<br>
<br>
It was sold in boxes of 20 rounds. Marked on the box was;<br>
20 CARTRIDGES<br>
6.5 M/M MANNLICHER-CARCANO<br>
TYPE BALL<br>
DA-23-196-ORD-27<br>
WESTERN CARTRIDGE COMPANY<br>
DIVISION OF OLIN IND., INC.<br>
EAST ALTON, ILLINOIS<br>
LOT WCC- 6002<br>
<br>
In 1963, this was probably the most reliable 6.5 mm ammo avaiable<br>
since older ammo was responsible for about 10 per cent misfires.<br>

Raymond..... I wonder if you're confident enough to prove me<br>
&quot;wrong&quot;??? I'll bet you whatever amont of money you'd like to wager<br>
that you can't take any one of my Mannlicher Carcanos and place a<br>
cartridge in the chamber and close the bolt and fire the rifle....<br>
If you can close the bolt on the cartridge that you place in the<br>
chamber without using a clip I lose, but if you can't close the bolt<br>
and fire the rifle then you lose. Now how much would you like to<br>
bet????<br>

(Testimony of Robert A. Frazier FBI Weapons Expert)<br>
<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Have you had occasion to purchase ammunition for this rifle?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Does the ammunition come in the clip?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Normally it does not. The ammunition that we have purchased for this<br>
rifle comes in 20-shot boxes. It is possible and I say this as a<br>
result of reading advertisements--to buy ammunition for this rifle,<br>
and to receive a clip or clips at the same time, but not necessarily<br>
part of the same shipment.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
When you ordered C-250, which is now Commission Exhibit 542, did you<br>
receive a clip with that rifle?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
No, sir.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Would you deduce, therefore, that the clip--that someone wishing to<br>
shoot that rifle and use a clip in the rifle would have purchased the<br>
clip later?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
They would have to acquire it from some source, yes.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Is it commonly available?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
Can you use that rifle without the clip?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes; you can.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
What is the advantage of the clip?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
It permits repeated firing of the weapon without manually loading one<br>
shot at a time.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
The only other way you can fire it is by way of manual load?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir; one shot at a time.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
When you say a six-cartridge clip, could that gun have been fired with<br>
the clip fully loaded and another one in the chamber?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
The same as the .30-06?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir; the weapon will hold a maximum of seven.<br>

<br>
<br>
The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
Thatís for another story.<br>
<br>
<br>
For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
<br>
bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
the magazine from either end.<br>
Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.<br>
<br>
<br>
Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
supervision at the end of the war.<br>

ADDENDUM:<br>
<br>
<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
You have shown us photographs of a clip--the clip from the Exhibit 139<br>
<br>
<br>
rifle?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
<br>
One photograph loaded, and one unloaded?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes. In one instance I put six cartridges in the clip and photographed<br>
it.<br>
Mr. Eisenberg.<br>
Did you take those photographs?<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
Mr. Frazier, you testified that if you DIDN'T USE THE CLIP you would<br>
only be able to shoot ONE SHELL AT A TIME, is that right?<br>
<br>
Mr. Frazier.<br>
Yes, sir; this weapon DOES NOT HAVE THE BOX MAGAZINE commonly found in<br>
most military weapons which holds the cartridges and can be re-loaded<br>
one at a time, but they must remain in the clip, or they will<br>
malfunction. The follower in the weapon will throw the cartridges<br>
right back out of the gun.<br>
<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
That explains it to my mind, because I know I have fired rifles with<br>
clips and fired them without clips. But they were much more convenient<br>
in loading.<br>
Mr. Mccloy.<br>
Thank you very much, Mr. Frazier. You have been very helpful.<br>

I'll ask you again.... HOW MUCH WOULD YOU LIKE TO BET???<br>
<br>
A lie posted by an &quot;expert&quot; is still a lie..... &quot;Experts&quot;.... are<br>
not infallible.... Simply because a physician may be an excallent<br>
general pactioner he may not be an &quot;expert&quot; on diseases of the<br>
lungs. So simply because you cite an &quot;expert&quot; does NOT mean he's<br>
correct in this case. I ask you again....HOW MUCH WOULD YOU LIKE TO<br>
BET??<br>

would you like to bet that the Mannlicher Carcano CANNOT be loaded by<br>
simply dropping a cartridge into the firing chamber and closing the<br>
bolt??? In other words it cannot be fired as a &quot;single shot&quot;<br>
rifle. Do you lack the guts to put some money behind your claim??<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; The clips come in brass, blue steel and a parkerized grey finish. They<br>
&gt; &gt; will fit all versions of the Carcano. They will also fit the Scotti<br>
&gt; &gt; and Armaguerra semi-automatic rifles which Italy made all too few of.<br>
&gt; &gt; Thatís for another story.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; For a brief period in the thirties Italy considered going to a 7.35 mm<br>
&gt; &gt; cartridge, and made some carbines in that calibre. If you find this<br>
&gt; &gt; stuff clipped they will also function in the 6.5 mm as their case<br>
&gt; &gt; bodies are the same diameter. The clips/chargers can be inserted in<br>
&gt; &gt; the magazine from either end.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; Of course they can be used over and over, and, remember without the<br>
&gt; &gt; clips/chargers you have a SINGLE SHOT RIFLE.<br>
&gt; &gt; Some Carcanos were converted to 8 x 57 mm Mauser under German<br>
&gt; &gt; supervision at the end of the war.<br>

I'll bet you a box of 20 firecrackers. like these pictured here<br>

<br>
&gt;Pardon me, Raymond.... I'm sure you'll excuse me if I don't believe<br>
&gt;that Oswald shot &quot;AT&quot; Walker..... Do you have PROOF that Oswald shot<br>
&gt;&quot;AT&quot; Walker??<br>
<br>
&gt;The evidence revealed a bullet hole in Walker's window so it's obvious<br>
&gt;that a bullet was fired into Walker HOUSE.... But WHERE?? was Walker<br>
&gt;at the time??<br>
<br>
&gt;Do you have PROOF that Lee Oswald was the person who fired that<br>
&gt;rifle?? Do you have PROOF that he was alone in that alley behind<br>
&gt;Walker's House??<br>
<br>
&gt;When was that bullet fired through walker's Window?? Could it have<br>
&gt;been fired during the day and then later that night a firecracker was<br>
&gt;set off to sound like a single gunshot??<br>
<br>
&gt;Walker claimed that he just sat there behind his desk for a time after<br>
&gt;the sound of the &quot;shot&quot; so if the shooter was firing a Mannlicher<br>
&gt;Carcano he could have fired FIVE more times and INSURED that walker<br>
&gt;had been hit if that was his INTENTION. Was the reason that there was<br>
&gt;only a single shot because that &quot;shot&quot; was actually a firecracker??<br>
<br>
&gt;Walt<br>
<br>
Dear Walt<br>
Can you tell me if six &quot;firecrackers&quot; will fit in the SMI clip Lee<br>
used in his MC?<br>
Maybe that noise some of the witnesses heard and thought it was a<br>
firecracker were correct.<br>
And do you think Capt. Fritz switched the firecracker that was in the<br>
rifle with a Western round?<br>
Let us know please.<br>
Raymond.<br>

It appears that you do lack the guts to bet any money on your claim<br>
that the MC can be fired as a &quot;single shot&quot; rifle. You may not be<br>
smart enough to know that your evasion of the issue is tantamount to<br>
admitting that you KNOW the rifle cannot be fired as a single shot<br>
rifle but lack the guts to admit it openly.<br>

Walt, I believe you. <br>

Please contact me ASAP: paratr...@yahoo.com <br>

Since you appear to actually own a M-C....please ponder the following: <br>
<br>
www.oocities.org/whiskey99a/carcano.html <br>
<br>
&quot;Something else to consider with regard to the Mannlicher Carcano clip is the 
fact that it is designed to hold 6 bullets. Since only 3 spent shells and 1 live 
round were apparently found at the scene it is logical to assume that if there 
was a clip it only contained 4 bullets at the time the shooting occurred. This 
is problematic because when a Carcano clip is underloaded the bullets have a 
strong tendency to fall over making it impossible to load and shoot them 
properly.&quot;<br>
<br>
MUST ONE HAVE 6 CARTRIDGES IN-THE-CLIP, IN-THE-WELL TO CYCLE THE M-C BOLT? <br>
