we got rained out so our boltgun, 1911 and 1897 match is tentatively moved to August.
Let us know how it goes!

Itís moving along. Got the grip tangs tig welded together and ground down by a very talented local knifemaker, blade ground on and am fitting the scales. Decided on leaving the the flat sided edge on the bolo blade (to move it to the center will make the blade significantly narrower, ruining the wide bowie look) but will move the edge to the center of the blade near the point. I also had planned on bluing the grip and guard but the majority of Krag bayonets were eventually left in the white. Found a pix of a krag bowie leather /steel scabbard that I might be able to replicate. Put 5 rds through the constabulary rifle this afternoon with the krag bowie mounted. Stayed on Pitspitr! Yehaw! Does make a big difference though, the rifle (no ammo) with mounted bowie weighs 10.0 lb while the rifle alone weighs 8.6 lb. Canít imagine that it could possibly affect the harmonics of the 120+- year old bbl? Muzzle break?  Pictures coming soon.


Meanwhile, back at the ranch... Changed my mind. Wound up hitting the grip and guard with some oxpho blue to darken it, I think that it looks better dark. Honestly, donít most of us look better in the dark?

That looks great!!  BTW...I love the PC Krag carbine.  I wish I had jumped on one years ago when there were some floating around.
