Re: 1962 Surplus ad, what to get if you had 35 bucks

My mother took us to Wisconsin fishing lodge for vacation the year Kennedy was elected and my love of surplus began with ads in Outdoor Life and Field & Stream and Sports Afield magazines ads. A lot of them back then. Never be able to buy them like that again.

Re: Gold 33 stamped on cut down stock

Try looking up DCM cut down rifles while I don't hold much hope it could be one, maybe you'll gain more knowledge about this symbol modification? Again, Ask over on the Krag Collectors forum?

Very nice rifle. I own a full 1898 made in 1901 also, a cut down 1898 sporter that shoots as good as my full rifle.
