Steyr - Norwegian Krag Model 1894 -Tech. Book

Post by butlersrangers » Fri Sep 18, 2015 5:05 pm

Member 'BMF' (of Norway) posted an interesting link on Gunboard's Forums, under 'Forum: Krag Rifles of Norway, Denmark & U.S.A.' - "Original Drawings for the Steyr Production".

The link takes you to a posting on the Norwegian - Kongsberg Weapons History site. The posting shows photos by Lars Selnes of an 1896 Steyr Technical Book (Repeating Rifle Model 1894 Norwegian - System Krag Jorgensen).

(In 1896-97 Steyr had a contract to manufacture some Model 1894 Krags for Norway).

Definitely worth a look!

Bumped for 'swedelover', fellow KCA member.

I suspect link was lost during 'gunboards forum' update.

Hopefully old KCA post gives clues to find source and link.

There is a lot of good information on the Kongsberg Vapenhistoriske Forening (Kongsberg Arms History Association) - KVF Website.

Featured are: Arms, cartridges, history, photos, accessories, accouterments, tools and manuals.

Some pages even come with a generic translating tool, which adds the humor of having to translate common English words into correct firearm terms.
It is a good place to explore and roam around!

Some cool photos:
