Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

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.

I have purchased several rifles from Hampel's in Traverse City, but the Krag came through Gun Broker in 2012.

Nice rifle. Wondered if it came from Hampels as I saw 3 or 4 nice ones there last spring.

It shoots okay but it's not a tack driver. Like most Krags it works better with round nose bullets. Spitzers just don't work for some reason.

How is this barrel? :doh: :doh: :doh: A nice Krag drill rifle. Perfect for shooting tacks, like a Krag shotgun 8-) :doh: And it came with the original sling. I guess you got to tell the Legion they should clean a rifle after firing blanks :violin:

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

It might shoot better than you think. Get some moderate 220gr loads and try it out.
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.
