What test is this, have not heard this before?
The Italian parts are in many ways superior to USGI, made during peacetime without deadlines involved.

They are Used Good Condition. We do not have them in stock yet, so I don't know much more than I have stated so far.

Default Italian Army...worked with them in 1987

Jumped from the C-130 I was driving, all carried ar70's and a few BM 59's as a saw. oh yea a 110lbs shepard. First class military, that bs of the rifle dropped one time was a off shoot of how half hearted the Italian people were to fight americans...most had family in the US. My uncle engauged the alpine fashasts who fought with german alpine ss....he discribed some very tuff blood bath encounters.

The only things I've ever flown are a Beech and a Cessna. :-(

Plus 1 on the Cessna, btw; I did barrel roll a 747 once at 1000 ft msl but it turned out to be a very vivid and fun dream!

The Italian parts are excellent quality.

They have been making firearms longer than anybody and even their lower end firearms are good.

Has anyone noticed that the "black shirts", when passing in review held their rifles by one arm balanced by the receiver, and parallel to the deck? this is different than any other army's parade protocol I've ever seen before.

Was this so they wouldn't have as far to fall, and wouldn't get as damaged when they were dropped, (which contributed to the legendary accuracy of the Mannlicher Carcano carbines) ?

(Kidding about the 2nd part, not about the first.)
