Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #9295, 30-40 Krag, 30" barrel with an about very good bore that shows scattered light pitting and frosting but strong rifling. The receiver, bands, magazine box, bolt and triggerguard are a silver pewter appearing lightly cleaned with some scattered oxidation staining and light-to-moderate pitting. The barrel retains perhaps 30% original blue with the balance having turned a dull brown patina with scattered oxidation staining. The walnut stock rates very good with an added varnish, a 1/2" crack on the left side of butt, a strong circled "P" firing proof, a partially faded 1895 inspector's cartouche, scattered dings, scratches and handling marks. The rifle has a correct flat crown, an 1896 rear sight, a correct buttplate that lacks a trapdoor and a correct steel cleaning rod. A good overall example of a hard-to-find non-updated 1892 Krag rifle. (208397-48) {ANTIQUE} (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $1,840.00
