    Their US Krag stocks are pretty rough. I don't know if they do the Norwegians. I'd like to put it back near what it would have become, in which case I need a model 1894 stock to start with. There was just a bunch of them on gunbroker, but I got...

    This last weekend I spent a little time shooting my WW II bring back from 244 to 265 yards with this boolit, 48.0 gr. WC872 and MML @ 1950 fps. Now mind you, I'm just about disabled, but off the bench I almost couldn't miss and at one point I got...

    Pretty amazing story for a firearm. Just noticed the bayonet lug, I'm not well versed on Krags, I wonder what bayonet fits?

    Wonder how the technical points of the law would go here. On the one hand, the receiver was made pre-1898, so it's an antique. Then on the other hand, most of what's there was assembled in 1944 and given a new number. Would it be a C&R over 50,...

    Now I can get in on those long running 6.5x55 threads! But I'm not going to buy a cruise missile! There was a very ratty old sporter stock, perhaps a Fajen or Bishop, that came along with the action. It'll work better on my .243 project. I was...

    Both France and China made corrosive 30 M1 ammunition, I'm sure there were others. Chinese "LC 52" head stamped has been floating around the US for a couple of decades.
