1898 Springfield .30-40 Krag-Jorgensen rifle. I bought it because of the historical elements. It had been sporterized by a previous owner many years before I got my hands on it, but I did find some ammo for it, of which I stocked up.
I doubt anyone is making .30-40 ammo these days, they can't keep up with orders for modern ammo. It's been treated roughly over the years by whomever owned it and has become a safe queen. I was planning on selling it, but my wife, who is pure Norwegian, insisted I sell it to her. She wrote me a check for my asking price, from our joint account. I don't think I came out ahead in that deal.
I'm toying with restoring it, but that is kind of low on my to-do list just now.
