i have a well used, altered krag that was passed down from my grandfather to my father, to me. Ive killed more deer than both of them combined with
it. finest action ever built and the first cartridged sniper rifle produced for service, plus it has more safety features built into it than any gun
eventually i will modernize it and put a fresh button rifled bull barrel on it, and create a more custom designed stock. and put some optics on it and
i should do just fine. too bad it wasnt designed as a 3 lug system like the mauser, but what it is is perfection for a sideloading sniper weapon.
my grand father cut 4" inches off the barrel, so now it looks like an anschutz , but still shoots like a dream.
it was built by Springfield in 1900, burnt stamped right on the stock
