If you have heard these Springfield made rifles are the smoothest bolt action rifle ever made, believe it. This one is in excellent condition. I also own a K98k Mauser, M1917 Eddystone made Endfield, and a Remington made 03-A3. The Krag is by far the smoothest. It shows wear on the receiver, from Spanish American war I hope. If you are not familiar with these rifles, they load through a unique loading gate on the side. I love old military arms and this is my favorite - except for my M-1 Garand. Had a friend dig around in his storage shed and pulled out a ammo can with 250 rounds of 30-06 and gave them to me. Made in 1956. I found 53 rounds were tracer! They were pretty tarnished but all have fired so far. I would love to find some military FMJ ammo for the Krag though. Anyone have 30-40 Krag ammo in FMJ?
