Re: My first Krag (1898 Sporterized)

That is a well done sporter and should be a fun shooter. If you do not already then now is the time to take up reloading. Might need to ease into it with the current market but in the long run much cheaper than factory loads.

Re: Inherited 1895 Springfield Carbine

Pictures are going to be necessary for any vauable information.
Full length both sides, close up of the receiver and front and rear sights are a good start.
And welcome here and to the complicated interesting and enjoyable world of Krags!!

Re: Visiting Springfield Armory

Our travels have taken us on to Sturbridge Village, Lexington & Concord, and Bar Harbor, Maine.
What a great trip BR! We visited those sites along with others such as Mystic Seaport many years ago as youngsters. I would love to do that loop agin see what time has done!

Re: The Smithsonian Krag

I also found Ken's book interesting, well written and very readable. It should have a place in every Krag collectors library.

Re: Older Threads - fatal error?

I get that too on some posts. I am told that the information is still there but the right avenue of acces needs to be determined. Something to do with the recent secureing of the site I believe. Working on it as time permits.
