Re: Krag 30/40 and accuracy vs. chamber/throat

Criterion is leaving the 'finish reaming' to the barrel installer.

The CMP shop offers installation of Criterion barrels on Krag rifles and carbines, so they must do 'finish reaming' and check the head-space.

Other installers .... ?

Re: Krag 30/40 and accuracy vs. chamber/throat

That 180 grain 'flat base' spitzer sounds like a winner! With a slightly off-set scope, some shooters adjust the windage-knob so that 'point of aim' remains parallel to 'the line of the bore', at all distances. 'Kentucky Aiming' at 9 o'clock, about 1 to 2 inches to the left of the 'X-ring', may keep...

Re: 1887 Prototype #5

Sorry I didn't ask earlier, Tom, but how long is the barrel on this novel and early Krag?

Tom: Does it appear to be the 'round-cornered' Rasmussen rifling?

Re: In summary ...

I found "The Wizard of Oz" plenty scary, when I first saw it on B&W TV, at age eight. The Flying Monkeys were most terrifying. I didn't know things went to 'color', (when Dorothy stepped out of her Kansas house and into 'Munchkin Land'), until I was 32 years old and bought my first col...

Re: In summary ...

When my boys were 2 to 5 years old, "The 'Bizard' of Oz" was their favorite movie. Having a VCR, which even a toddler could operate, allowed them to view their favorite sections, over and over, on demand. I can't fathom how many times I have heard & re-heard significant parts of this c...

Re: 1887 Prototype #5

It appears that the 'non-attached' 1/2 Capsule-Magazine, (like the one on Tom's new sporting Krag), could have been easily adapted to work on most 'turn-bolt' repeaters, like the 1871/84 Mauser, Kropatshek, Mannlicher, model 1888 Commission rifle, Remington-Lee, Hotchkis, Lebel, Berthier, and numero...

Thanks for your insights "Skillest".

The early Krags have some mighty sleek lines!

Re: My Grandfather Krag found 20 years after he died

Bump - Interesting story on 'stashed' Krag found in Puerto Rico house.
