Receiver rails look good. Damage appears on rails at rear where the bolt stops its rearward movement Marks will match the lug pattern. You got a keeper there! Lube and clean it each season and she should do you good.

I found the cap guards(lil pink things) here under loading accessories under RMC products. Item #ML1084

One nice fact is....the pink lil thingies help stop frags of the caps and the danger thereof. They keep the caps on the nips. Go on really easy.

Those not wanting to modify their guns and do it the easy way the pink things are helpful.

The mechanical cap guards are cool but....there are still fragmentation of caps that can hang the gun up other places besides going in the hammer channel. They are good fer solving some of the problem but not all of it. The lil pink things(cap guards) solve it all. The draw back they cost a lil over a coupla bucks per 50ct.

My idea of a cap guard that was mechanical and solved it all would be the rear outside of the cylinder turned so a band of steel could be press fit and maybe screwed with a coupla lil screws around the outside rear so there was no opening above the cap/nipple and a thin backplate integral with a block in the hammer channel where a firing pin(sorta large diameter and flat on the end to hit the caps) with a spring(like a Richards conversion) to retract it and....there would need be a gate to the loading channel and.......and the nips would need stoned a lil shorter or sunk in the cylinder a lil to avoid chain fire against the thin backplate. The firing pin would need be sorta long and the block where it was mounted in a lil long too since the nips are sunk in some(further from the recoil shield). The hammer nose modified accordingly.

Therefore there would be no way for a cap to frag or whatever or come loose and get out of its own lil compartment and hang anything up. Then the gate  opened and the spent cap  removed by the operator of the shootin iron. The modification would look sorta like a cartridge conversion.

I thunk it could be made to work.  Huh Worth it? ....... I thunk so. Shocked  It would be a lil bit a work but not really way too much.

Anyway I'd say that it would be really good if a company actually made a percussion cap that stayed put and didn't frag apart when ignited. That kind of cap would be ideal for Cowboy shooters.

Schueler & Coors, Golden Brewery (18731880)

Coors has been in business in a number of forms since 1873, initially employing a Czech recipe. It survived prohibition and labor troubles and now operates widely throughout the world.  VERY historical and western.

I have no idea of the containers used in the early days, but someone will enlighten us.

This is a thread hijack!  The bag could fit NCOWS activities, and just might find a market.

The Krags didn't really figure in the Indian wars, as it was just a little late for that.  The Spanish-American War was really sort of the Krag's debut.  Pony's right about the Rolling Block.  It was pretty much the AK47 or the FAL of it's day.  About the only place it didn't get used much is here!  Hope you find something you like and come play the game with us!

You probably were looking at the most recent 12 years of production which are pretty nice quality.
Go to this thread with 3rd gen serial numbers and you can tell what vintage you're looking at:,45382.0.html

Yup, the latter Colts I've seen are pretty nice.
  Thanks for that list.

Ha! You're probably right. I still have about four rifles to knock out before calling it quits on the modern stuff. It'd drive me nuts to leave boxes of parts just laying around. I love the old rolling blocks. Was the Krag used during the late Indian War period? I didn't think there were enough in production till around or after the Spanish-American War. Do you reload for your guns? Seems like it could get pricey to shoot older guns with obscure calibers.

Did the Cavalry wear leggings or boots? Stripes on the sleeves or not? I think they were the web belt also, didn't they?

Molinaro? No one pays any attention to him ennyways. Would explain why I missed it, don't read his stuff.

Griffin's easy. If he stays healthy he wins games. Unhealthy or hobbled 'n Cousins is the better choice.

Stewart's sittin' Bristol out. Reckon this is Zipadelli's version of 'business as usual.'
