Re: My first US Krag, an 1899 Carbine

I had to get out my magnifying glass to see the little "C" on the slide face. I suppose this is significant?

Re: My first US Krag, an 1899 Carbine

The extractor is fire blued, and the barrel is rust blued. When I get home I will take a look at the rest of the parts to reassess how they look based on your post.

By the way, what are these going for these days?

Re: My first US Krag, an 1899 Carbine

I forgot to state that the bore is bright and shiny; absolutely no sign of degradation whatsoever. There is an oiler and three sections of a cleaning rod in the cavity under the butt plate. Should there have been four? It does not appear that three sections are long enough to extend through the leng...

Re: My first US Krag, an 1899 Carbine

My carbine is marked 1899 on the receiver, and I do not believe it has ever been refinished. The 1913 Gallery Practice Rifle (Hoffer-Thompson), the 1926 National Match ‘03 and the 1938 ‘03 Springfield Sporter that came from the same collection have not been refinished either (the latter two also loo...

Last weekend at a gun show I found an 1899 Carbine in fabulous shape. The stock cartouche is very sharp and , if I read the cursive stamp correctly, is JLA 1901; t...
