The Criterion Krag barrels are supplied threaded and have the extractor cut and the front sight dove tail and rear sight screw holes drilled and tapped. And have a timing witness or alignment mark like the originals.

My gunsmith says the ones he has installed are precision and install up to the witness mark every time. I will ask about the chamber reaming required.

Maybe we should move this thread to US Krags.

refer my post in nov I acquired the Hanevik krag jorgensen gevaert book and found that there were .22 krags
MY question is I have several krags and swedes I purchased a set of 6.5 bore gauges and checked all of them they range from 6.48 t thru 6.50
however I have a m1912 carbine,full military,in vg to ex condition:the trouble I have is that the m1912 measures 6.37mm that is not a misprint
the 6.48 bore gauge will not go in the barrel or the breach I don t know what to do about it any suggestions would be appreciated

On the one the 6.48 gauge does not enter, do you have smaller gauges to see how much smaller. The gauges are much harder than the barrel so do not force any of them.
The measurement of most concern would be full diameter of the grooves. If your 6.5 has an even number of grooves slug it and mike or have someone mike the outside of the grooves. You will be looking for .264 inches or 6.7 mm.
