Re: 1899 Philippines Constabulary Carbine Production Numbers

Yeah the labelling of those charts is indeed odd, but thanks for clarifying that for me, and providing this information! It is very helpful.

Re: 1899 Philippines Constabulary Carbine Production Numbers

Thank you very much for sharing those charts and images, the charts aren't in the version of the book I have! Though, the charts are confusing me a bit. Is the second chart just representing what rifles were sold out of the entire batch listed in the chart titled "Carbines Altered To Take Knife Bayo...

Re: 1899 Philippines Constabulary Carbine Production Numbers

Hi butlersrangers, Sorry, I did not mean to imply that the 1896 Cadet Rifles issued to West Point cadets were these Constabulary carbines. I understand that 404 of the 1896 pattern rifles that were actual "1896 Cadet Rifle" models were issued to cadets from West Point, and 395 or so got modified int...

Re: 1899 Philippines Constabulary Carbine Production Numbers

Thanks for the reply! From my understanding, only 350 of the carbines were made for the Girard College for shooting sports by springfield, and then an additional batch of less than 1000 were made for Cadet use at the US military Academy. The total production numbers from these books include the coll...

1899 Philippines Constabulary Carbine Production Numbers

Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of you could help me with figuring out many of the 1899 Constabulary Carbines were produced. I'm currently writing a book on krags that covers mostly Danish and Norwegian models, but I am also including American krags. One of my main problems right now is I have 3...

Re: Pictures for A Krag Book! (American Models)

Hi! Thanks on the offer, but I do have a separate publisher already in mind. My day job is design and marketing, and I design the books for Headstamp Publishing, a firearms centric publishing company. I've discussed the book with them already but my book is obviously a year or two off from even havi...

Pictures for A Krag Book! (American Models)

Hi Everyone! I had recently posted this on the European Krags section of the forum and realized I should probably post it here as well. Sorry if this is considered just a repost. I'm currently in the process of putting together a book on the Krag-Jorgensen! I'm focusing more on the Norwegian models ...

Re: Pictures for A Krag Book!

Hi! Thanks for the welcome, and for the Danish military picture, I'm sure that will come in handy! It's okay that you don't have any European models, Any Krags are welcome really, as I do have a chapter on the American Krag development and will need photos of those in the future, perhaps posting ano...
