in .30-40 with Original Web Belt
Made in 1901
This is a very nice
unmodified original Springfield Krag
carbine made in 1901.
The overall condition is very good to excellent. The stock doesn't appear to have been sanded or refinished
and the inspector's cartouche and "P" proof are very clear.
There is one bad chip out near the toe (see pictures)
otherwise just the usual dents and dings from years of use
and handling. No cracks or checks. The 22" barrel has about
85% of the blue remaining on the exposed surfaces, better
underneath. The bore is very good with good rifling.
Should be a good shooter. The action is turning to a grey
patina. The brown coloring in the receiver and on the bolt
is old dried oil, easily removable. This carbine also has an
original scarce front sight hood and the early style bolt
cocking piece. The action is smooth and locks up tight.
The butt trap has the original three piece
cleaning rod and oiler. The original double stack Mills web
belt shown comes with the gun.
I also have new and original ammo
listed on Gunbroker for this gun.
I took a lot of pictures so judge for
yourself. Very nice example of a short lived U.S. military
gun. American Krag rifles and carbines were only produced
for 10 years.
