I have one box of 30-40 Krag  180 GR Silvertip EXP.

20 center fire rifle cartridges (WESTERN Brand) for sale

 

I gave the rifle to my brother but could not send the ammo

to Michigan.

 

$15.00 for the box.

I'd love to have a stock non bubba'd Krag.......   It's on my bucket list.   If I ever find one I will look you up Sir....!    Oh, the stories that rifle could tell....   If I ever find it.  Had a relative who died in the Spanish American War.  This is where the USA used these for sure as I have read.   He's buried in Golden Gate Cemetery. Been to his grave there.   A very beautiful and solemn place.   What a view from his grave site it is.   Regards, Chris

At one time my father, my younger brother and I all had 30-40 Krag's.  I hated to give mine up but

I gave it to my brother and he is handing it down to one of his sons. That is one great gun and if I

had been in the war back in the day it would have came in handy.  I liked the breach load, I could

drop 5 cartridges in there and slap it shut and was in action.  Great deer hunting rifle too.

I still have the cartridges.

Camay, would still love to have a Krag, untouched of course.......!  Not modified by Bubba the rifle smith......  I have a relative buried in the Presidio of SF graveyard.   Killed in the Philippines in 1898 or so......?   Been to his grave there........    I am sure he carried a Krag back then......  That's what they had back then....   Story was the Mausers the Spanish had were much better.......  Faster firing and more accurate....   Thus our model of 1903, based on the Mauser action.    Chris
