M1899 Krag Carbine

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. Click here.

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.

FFL required.
