  1. It's an odd habit that the Italians have, wearing a dead crow on their helmets. Reminds me of that native American chap you pictured here recently.

  2. That magazine seems like std. AR15 fare.....doesn't seem a little too short to reach below that ejection port? Asking for a friend............

  4. Is that going to turn into a "dropped once,never fired" gun too that the Italians are so famous for?

  6. Helmet feathers are from the capercallie, called an Auerhahn in German. They were originally used for camouflage and shade.

    They are a light infantry formed about 200 year ago. They run everywhere, even in parades.
    Mussolini was a member of this unit.
