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.

WANTED: Norwegian Krag Books

#1 Post by SafetyOff » Thu Mar 19, 2020 4:35 pm

Hey All,

I'm curious if anyone knows about any printed publications or books about Norwegian Krags. There is tons of stuff out there on US .30-40s (for obvious reasons) but finding info about Norwegian variants/history if a tough prospect. I'm a huge 6.5x55 and would love to know more about the Norwegian Krags. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanx.

Hanevik, Karl Egil (1998). Norske Militærgeværer etter 1867. Hanevik Våpen.

No English language books on the Norwegian Krag–Jorgensen as primary references that I know about. Sort of like finding information on The Mosin --all the good references are in a different language.

Haha! Thanks for the lead 72 usmc! As of now looks like I'll need to put that trip on hold... Or maybe write myself a niche book.
