New Krag Bolt
« on: October 05, 2021, 07:02:05 PM »
Gentlemen, I'm rebuilding a Krag carbine with a new CMP barrel.  Today I got a new old stock bolt for it from Granpa's Gun Parts.  There's nothing like scrubbing one hundred twenty five year old cosmoline out of a brand new, never used bolt.  I also replaced the main spring and the firing pin while I had it apart.  Should turn into a great shooter!

I should add it's an 1899 Carbine.  It came with an actual 1899 stock and hand guard on a cut down rifle.
