It is my understanding that this weapon was a very unreliable Italian riffle, a Marine sniper I would think would prefer the German WWII bolt action sniper riffle, it was thought that the German sniper riffle of the time was even better in service than its lesser counterpart from America. So why would a Marine not go for what has been a proven battlefield design.

It was completelly possible for the event to have happened the way it supposedly did.
I'm not even super good with bolt action rifles and with my finnish nagant rifle I could make 3 shots on a target moving that speed in the required time 100% of the time.
