Krag Rifle Tool
« on: July 19, 2022, 09:26:54 AM »
Gentlemen,  Does anyone have one of the original combination tools for the Krag?  If so, could you measure how long the pin punch is?  Thanks!

Mine measures right at 3/32" from the insertion point - it should extent into the hole for a bit over 3/8", with the sharp edge of the tip being broken, but not rounded.

Drill rod makes a good substitute.

Thank you!  I'm modifying a damaged 1903 tool, and needed to know where to cut off the punch.
