1898 Krag Rifle

with bayonet

 in .30-40

 

 

The Springfield Krag/Jorgenson rifle was probably the last service rifle that was adopted for U.S. service from a foreign design. They were manufactured under license by Springfield Armory from 1892 to 1903. Only about 500,000 of all variants were produced.

This is a very nice example of this model rifle. It is all correct and not messed with. I have completely disassembled it, cleaned off all of the old dried grease and oil and checked every part. Mechanically it is in excellent condition. The blue is turning to a grey in most areas with the barrel turning a brown. The stock has the usual dents and dings but still has a crisp 1899 dated cartouche and proof stamps. There is a very small crack in the front of the handguard. The bore is very good with crisp rifling. Might even clean up better. I just ran a brush through it a few times then oiled it. The butt trap has a 4 section rod. They usually only carried three sections so you get an extra which actually makes the rod as long as the barrel. The bayonet and scabbard are in excellent condition and dated 1902. The blade has not been sharpened.

There is an original Mills double loop web belt and several boxes of new Remington 180gr Core-Lokt ammo available at additional cost for this rifle as well.

Overall a very nice, clean rifle that is a good shooter and would be an excellent addition to any collection.

The pictures will tell you more. Contact me if you need pictures of something I missed.

Mills Double Loop Web Belt for .30-40 Krag

 

Very nice web belt in excellent condition for the .30-40 Krag rifle. It has some discolorization but no fraying or tears. It has the double loop for a total of 100 rounds. A double strap or suspender harness were often issued with these belts for good reason. (Put 100 rounds of rifle ammo in your pockets and see how long your pants stay up.) These were used with and without the large square U.S. or state marked belt buckles.
