You are dealing with contrarians that will take the discussion down the rabbit hole of the history of business practices regarding substituting items instead of dealing with the evidence in this case.  Oswald was sent a specific rifle with a specific serial number.  It was sent to his PO box.  He is pictured holding that rifle.  There is no accounting for that rifle except as the rifle found at his place of employment on 11.22.63.  That rifle has the same serial number as the one Klein's sent him.  It has his prints on it.  There is absolutely no doubt base on the evidence that Oswald was sent a specific rifle, he possessed that rifle, and it is the one found at the TSBD.   Even if it could be demonstrated that Klein's was the only company in the history of the world to substitute items, it makes no difference regarding what the evidence demonstrates happened in this case.  The contrarians can't deal with the evidence.  So the rabbit hole deflections are their preference.

Good point-thank you.

The photographic experts for the HSCA concluded that the rifle in the photos was the same rifle recovered by the Dallas Police. I know, I know, they don't accept the legitimacy of the photos. Even if they did, they'd reject the photographic analysis too.

I mean, we go round-and-round on this and they just won't accept it.

Forensic science is highly subjective even without considering how difficult it is to give conclusive answers based on photographic evidence alone. So while I take into account what experts say about these matters, their conclusions aren't infallible.


Unless someone physically witnessed Oswald taking the backyard photos, it's impossible to say with 100% certainty that the rifle in the photos is the same as the Sixth Floor rifle.

The most obvious discrepancy is the location of the straps between different Carcano models. In the BYP, the straps appear to be on the bottom of the rifle, not on the side of the barrel like the rifle from the Sixth Floor of TSBD.

Good point-thank you.

Isn't it amazing how LNs start attacking critics the moment they get caught in presenting a selfserving assumption as if it had any factual significance and/or their own lies.

Yes it was quite common for companies to substitute a very similar item in the pre-Internet age.
For firearms especially?----Nonsense.
