According to the Warren Commission
report, an alias used by alleged Presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald
to purchase the Mannlicher-Carcano
used to kill John F. Kennedy
. The rifle was ordered through the mail from Klein's Sporting Goods of Chicago, Illinois. The ad for the rifle appeared in the February, 1963, issue of American Rifleman
magazine. The shipping address for the order read:
PO Box 2915
Oddly enough, Mr. Hidell does not appear to have purchased ammunition for the weapon. Nor did Mr. Oswald.
