Designed by Gino and Mario Revelli, the sons of [[Abiel Revelli]], the Armaguerra uses the [[recoil operation|short recoil]] operating principle with a pivoting locking block similar to a [[Walther P38]]. The rifle has two sling swivels, with the front sling swivel acting as the weapon's charging handle; the handle is locked in place with a small button located in front of the front sling swivel, which has to be depressed before charging the rifle. The rifle takes standard six-round Carcano clips, with a manual clip release located at the bottom of the magazine housing.

The rifle's bolt locks open on an empty magazine. The rifle has a bolt release located in front of the trigger guard, however, it only functions if the cartridge follower is depressed; when the follower is depressed and the bolt release actuated, the bolt flies forward at a very high speed. If the rifle is used improperly, the force of the bolt flying forward can severely injure the operator.
