I know, goes against the grain here. This is money that could go to hunts, stocks, barrels, etc....

    Is it in military configuration aside from the refinish?

    Is the metal and the stock refinished or just the metal? Just the stock?

    Is the refinish in the style of the original blueing, or is it parkerized?

    If it was refinished in the spirit of the original as-issue style, I would give it serious consideration personally. I've never seen a military configuration Krag for under $1200 around here.

    No it's refinish, metal and wood. It looks REALLY nice, but no collector value. But it looks GOOD for a 1903 gun

    Those are getting tougher to find. Any extra holes? That's a deal breaker for me. If you got the cash and you like it, get it!
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Check the rifling real good, some are notorious fer being "Shot Out" and tumbling bullets.

    Like that ole Colonel in the Army said when his college GF asked just who he expected to please with that little thing...............he said ME

    IOW go fer it!

    I've been wanting a 1895 in .30-40 for a long time! Just for the fact you found one for under $1000 you get a:yousuck: from me. And if you don't want it, I do. How about that for talking you out of it!!:jester:

    I knew that Plute killed the bull with a 30-40 Krag, but didn't realize it was an 1895.

    30-40 Krag just don't blow my whistle. Now if that was in .405 Win. or maybe even .30-06 I might get inspired.



    Ok-Ok How's that for trying?:jester:

    I'm stupid. I had the Krag rifle stuck in my head, not a Win 95.

    Buy it.

    I sent a message to see if they'll come down more on the price. Its already been reduced a bit, but never hurts to ask!

    Imagine pulling it out for your friends and having to say, " It's refinished and really has no collectors value..."

    Didn't really mean anything to you either, did it?

    Buy it!

    I was thinking the same thing that he was talking about a bolt action 30-40, not one that that looks like TRs "Big Medicine" or some say the actual quote was "Medicine Gun For Lions".

    I could send you the link.... I have asked them if they'll accept a lower price but have not heard back, I'm guessing it's a no. Current price is $768
