I like Granpas gun parts.  I got an 1896 Carbine band from him in poor condition.  It cleaned up quite nicely.  Just the right level of use for my carbine.  A 1901 sight would probably suffice. 

Update:  In fact, after doing some more research, the 1901 sight would probably be preferable.

I worked up a load of APP (Jim Shockey's™ GOLD™ Powder) and .313 -115 grain cast, coated bullets.  I had some NRA Pistol targets I pressed into service. Set at 25 yards at the range, the first shot was a flyer (1.75 inch off center @ 11:00) because I was just a bit apprehensive. With every following shot both my confidence & my aim improved. I settled down and kept the entire magazine within 3 inches, with 9 bullets in the black, 5 in the 8 ring and the one flyer in the 7 ring. Pretty much that’s the way it went all morning, I even snugged up my grouping.  Cheesy
 This old gun is still quite spry and is not near ready to retire. But it has earned my respect and so all my shots were off hand slow and deliberate.

Here is my target.... I'm quite pleased  Cheesy

I should add...this was off hand.....no rest used  Cool

Passed another hurtle today. I made up a window that has two panels that slides side ways. Then cut in a 2" X 10" frame to carry the wall weight and installed it. Either window will slide to the other side.

Good rainy morning all.

Today's my sister's graduation.  We'll be leaving for the city in about two hours.  I've taken my dog for a walk and showered, so I guess I'm ready.

We've put some more effort into the Jeep today.  Rotated and rebalanced the tires, didn't have time to pull the bearings: that's about four hours each.  Probably just going to take it in to the shop Monday.

 Sad He was the kind of man that made Hollywood and then they have turned to cheap effects to try to keep people. Men of that era's character are rare today.

Niederlander,

You may find many variation in sights and forearm guards between the late 1896 and 1898/01 Krag rifle/carbine combinations. I would suggest you contact Lodgewood or S&S with specifics and photos of your firearm as it is now!
They maybe able to help you?
My best,
 Blair

The '.38 S&W' caught me eye. Sometime back I picked up a R&D .38 Special conversion cylinder on Gun Broker for a hundred bucks for my conversion project. I reamed the chambers for .38 S&W cases and opened up the chamber throats to .375". The doner pistol
came from Cabel's bargain cave; .36 caliber Pietta 1861 Sheriff's model with fake ivories. Another $150 deal. My 'as cast' .363" RNL bullets do well enough at NCOWS distances, but as of late I'm experimenting with .375" Colt heeled bullets loaded in .38 S&W cases. No range time as of yet. Maybe this weekend.
