Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

The buttplate that you see in the pictures came off a cut down rifle stock I had in my parts bin.  It definitely fits as issued...just not on this stock haha.

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

I'm gonna feel pretty silly if I overlooked a wood shim like that  :(

I'll take a close look when I get home this afternoon.

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

Well..shoot.
I can make the buttplate fit.  It doesnt need *that* much work.
Id like to be sure Im not cutting on some super rare fat butt type II stock first lol.

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

Heres a pic under the buttplate showing the three holes.<br /><br />Ive also attached one showing the bore. Its pretty dark but has nice sharp rifling. Not bad!<br /><br /><img style="max-width: 100%;" src="http://kragcollectorsassociation.com/images/yabbfiles/Attachments/9193F6EE-D1A8-45F5-AE69-9D1...

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

I will get some pics of that this evening. 
There are two holes drilled in, one with the three holes for the cleaning rod.

Who knew this would be such a mystery carbine!

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

Hi all. Thanks so much for the eagerness to help out!<br /><br />As Dick stated, this is indeed a Krag buttplate...it came off a chopped down rifle stock.<br /><br />BR, thanks for the tips on barrel band fitting. Well within my wheelhouse and I can easily get that straightened out.<br /><br />Culpe...

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

And finally the buttplate.<br /><br />When I screw in the top screw it looks nice and neat in that area...but elsewhere....<br /><br />It looks like I need to inlet deeper for the top tang.  Any other recourse?<br /><img style="max-width: 100%;" src="http://kragcollectorsassociation.com/images/...

Re: Krag 1899 Carbine - Serial Number 849318

And pictures!<br /><br />It's a bit hard to photograph but the band is too tight to slide over the band and there's not enough space between the band and the step up in the stock to fit the band anyway. <br />Should I modify the band or the stock?  Which way is a more sensitive restoration?<br ...
