Re: Huber trigger on my Krag - Range Report

I got to shoot the Krag today. At 100 yards offhand, 6 for 6 on the 8" plates, 3 for 3 on the 6" gong, and 1 for 3 on the 4" gong, using cast bullets. I have a 4x Weaver post & crosshair scope, on a side mount on this rifle. What a pleasure, compared to the stock trigger. Trigger ...

Huber trigger on my Krag

I finally broke down and bought one, for one of my Krags, after much procrastinating. I installed it on my 98, which had the worst trigger. Removal of the old trigger, and installation of the new Huber was easy. I did leave a lightened replacement trigger return spring in place, that I had used for ...

Re: 26" barrel Krag?

Here are two photo's. Were the front sights on the Krags soldered on? If not how were they attached?

26" barrel Krag?

I have a 1898 Krag, that was somewhat sporterized. It was drilled and tapped for a side mount scope, by a previous owner. The barrel is 26" long. There is no front sight, but there is a flat on the barrel, where a front sight base would go. I thought Krags came only in 30 and 22" models. W...

Re: Scout Scope Mount

I did try to contact Kraghaus, but I never got a response back. I did not know if they were still in business. They accept only checks, no credit cards, so I wasn't about to just send money, unknowingly. Anyhow, the alternative worked out just fine.

Scout Scope Mount

I inherited a 1899 Krag carbine from my grandfather. He said he paid $1.50 for it from the DCM, way back when. It had been semi customized, with a Springfield front sight and a Rice rear sight. Anyhow my aging eyes just could not focus and see those pesky gongs at 100 yards. I had a Leupold 2x EER s...

Krag Video

I just happened to come across one. It is quite lengthy, and covers history and development. Quite interesting. Some might have seen it already.
