Re: Went Krag Shopping;

The butt plate is unscratched, never even been in a parade.  Bore like new.  Wood is sharp and clean.  At least now it will get some light as a wall hanger.<img style="max-width: 100%;" src="http://kragcollectorsassociation.com/images/yabbfiles/Attachments/P1030459__640x480_.jpg"><img...

Went Krag Shopping;

but came home with a Colt.  Packed in whale oil.  All the time scrubbing it I feared finding "Italy" stamped on it.  Made in 1864 for NJ;  never issued.  Like NOS, new old stock,  mint but no history to tell.  I'm happy.<img style="max-width: 100%;" src="...

Re: Target Shooting Sight Micrometers

O'Hare also offered parts to add to '03 windage adjustment screw and wheel that give 1 MOA detent clicks.  Cost was $2.00.  That would be nice to have

Re: Target Shooting Sight Micrometers

P.J. O'Hare catalog NO.8 ,no date, lists the micrometer for $5.00,  the sight cover for $1.00.  If in a "special hurry" your payment and order could be sent by telegraph.  We're not that much quicker today.

Re: Target Shooting Sight Micrometers

The micrometers will also work on a Krag as well as a Buffington trapdoor sight

Re: ERROR IN LYMAN 50th RELOADING MANUAL FOR KRAG

Same data is in Lyman 45th edition.  Must have been no problems since 1970.

More on Bullets

Dec. issue of "Handloader" magazine,  Brian Pierce's column had an interesting letter on 170 gr 30-30 bullets in Krag loads.  Brian's take was their ogive was better suited for Krags than spire points, and more accurate.  Thoughts ?

Re: 1905 Springfield bayonet

My school gun/PC likes either Krag or 1905, both fit just fine.<img style="max-width: 100%;" src="http://kragcollectorsassociation.com/images/yabbfiles/Attachments/P1030311__640x426_.jpg"><img style="max-width: 100%;" src="http://kragcollectorsassociation.com/images/yabbfiles/Attachments/P1030309__6...
