Re: SN #35776 Identification Help

Welcome Alestorm123. Others will be along with better detailed info. A picture of the overall gun and close-up/top view of the rear sight will help with better assessment. However, you have a 1903 front sight that goes along with your hunch that this particular rifle may have been sporterized. It is...

Re: Not sure exactly what this means?

I had a meeting with a contractor at work that had the last name of Holdaway. During the meeting I noticed that he had a very guttural accent. When the meeting was over I asked him what kind of accent he had. He said he was from England, which didn't make sense to me. But he explained that the area ...

Re: Not sure exactly what this means?

I don't know if she could have taught me Norwegian when I was young. Talking is way overrated when you are young and there are so many other things to do.

"The Coming Man" of 1881 Is Here

Below is a cartoon from The San Francisco Wasp in 1881. It depicts a Chinese man bringing his goods to America while American workers protest in the lower right-hand corner. Clothing goods was touted as one of the industries that China would take over. They have succeeded in that regard plus many in...

Camp Custer In WWI & Headlines Today

Tried to find more about Camp Custer for BR's "Military" section of the forum. This does not relate to the Krag, so I thought I'd put it in this section. If you don't want to hear any more about pandemics you may want to pass on this. If you want to see how it relates to 1918 this is a clear article...

A U. S. Magazine Rifle Model 1898, Serial #302538 at the Oshkosh Public Museum. Looks like Italian walnut.
