You are looking at the rarest piece of US Military equipment in existence. Rarer than a Luger in .45, or a Savage Trials .45. Trendsetting, evolutionary, portent of things to come.

Keep looking......

The pouch on the right was be to worn on the soldiers belt to give him a place to store the standard bolt from his rifle when it was removed from the gun in order to install the Pedersen device.

This was a SECRET project during WWI. The US Congress wasn't even aware of its existence.

I have two I don't shoot. But it's nothing to do with value. One is an old 12 ga. that was my Dads. I have other shotguns so I really have no reason to shoot it. I would like to see about getting another stock for it, the one on it has been cracked a while.

The other is a little FIE Derringer. I bought it of a little old lady (really!) that I was a little afeert would use it and I just didn't think it was a very safe weapon for her. I was able to find her a little 38 spl. that fit her needs much better.She was carrying that trigger guard-less Derringer in her apron pocket.

I am not one that likes safe queens all that much. Not that I think some don't deserve the honor. It's more a I don't have a lot of money so I don't have anything worth that kind of status. I do have one of the Jovino Effector Model 25-2 Smiths I don't shoot much. It's supposed to be pretty rare but I really don't know how rare. And it's just too much fun to shoot.

So how about posting up a pic or two? I would love to see it.
The Krag is just one of the many empty slots in my wish list.
