They’re the same as a M1896. The receiver on mine is marked 1895  no model.

According to "The American Krag Rifle and Carbine" by Poyer, the carbines produced from June of '95 to December of '95 were marked 1895, with no "Model"  before it.  There was no Model 1895 carbine.  For what it's worth, you should really get that book.  It will have all the information you're likely to need unless you get heavily into Krag collecting.
