What kind of gun was used to kill John F. Kennedy?


The gun that killed President John F. Kennedy was a Mannlicher-Carcano 6.5-millimeter model 91/38 Italian rifle. Authorities found the weapon on the sixth floor of the Texas School Depository shortly after the assassination on Nov. 22, 1963.

The gun was a bolt-action, clip-fed rifle made in Italy. Markings on the rifle indicated it was manufactured in 1940. The 8-pound rifle measured 40.2 inches long, and it had a four-power telescopic sight connected to it. Experts testified that bullets from the assassination, including a bullet found on a hospital stretcher and two fragments from the President's car, were fired from the rifle. The gun was linked to the accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, by fingerprints, fibers and records indicating he purchased the rifle for $19.95 in March 1963.
