Re: Danish Krag

From what I`ve read the Danes have a right hand thread. I talked about what I want to do with a friend of mine who builds museum quality reproductions of antique single shot rifles. I would like to save the barrel shank that has the markings on it but bore it out saving the threads and then turning ...

Re: Scope mount question

I have a Norwegian sporter that someone drilled and tapped for a side mount [not a Weaver] I Locktited some screws in the holes and then d&t for a Weaver base. Worked good.

Re: Sporterized 1896 carbine

Nice looking rifle you put together. I have a`98 sporter that must have been worked on many years ago that has the same scope mount and an old Lyman 4x. You can tell that it must have been used for hunting a lot with the dings and scratches on the stock but I will never refinish it. I have refinishe...

Danish Krag barrel

I have a Danish Krag sporter with a 28 inch barrel that I would like to shorten about 2or3 inches .It would be better  to do with the barrel off the action so that I could mount it on my lathe.How hard would it be to remove it and does it have right hand threads? Thank you,Kooler.

6.5x55 ammo

I have a sporterized Norwegian Krag that I shoot mostly cast bullets. I also have a lot of the Swedish surplus ammo that I have shot in my `96 Mauser. Is it safe to shoot the surplus ammo in my Krag ? Thanks,Kooler.

Re: Building a sporter

Since it`s already drilled and tapped mount a scope on it. I mounted an old vintage scope on mine which was sporterized many, many years ago and I`m glad that I did. But then again I`m 68 years old and the eyes are not like they used to be.

Re: First Post, FIRST KRAG!!

One of the good things about a sportered rifle is that you can mount a scope on it without affecting it`s value . I have the US ,Norwegian and Danish versions all were sporterized years ago and all are scoped. These 68 year old eyes shoot a lot better that way. Kooler
