    OMG you killed Bambi! Seems the oldtimers had to saw a foot or two off their Krag before it was fit to do that.

Most just slapped on an '03 barrel - like the DCM did, when they were using up the remaining spares.

Got a doe a couple of years ago with mine.

Charles, it was still full length, too. The deer didn't seem to care one way or the other.

      Well that's good on you Pony, and Jake, getting those old shooters out there and having them deliver the goods! I guess you get a little more velocity out of the 30" too, whether it's needed or not. My usual recreational truck/trunk/woods gun is a "carbine",  just because it stows so handily. When it comes right down to it though, I like the full length rifle, the Infantryman's weapon! :D

I thought mine was a doe when I pressed the trigger. He was a nice hybrid buck that had one antler broke off and the other was small. He was standing in front of a little bush so I couldn't see the antler. Like Pony's doe, he didn't seem to mind that my rifle was full length.

Perhaps Ira's point is-Charles Issac's now famous broken stock Krag is no way FUBAR, you can still recognize it's a Krag!. And still quite repairable. Now a Krag that Bubba has chopped, drilled, scoped, and painted camo.... That may be FUBAR!

I once handle a Krag that someone had taken off the loading gate and restocked.  It took me a good 10 minutes to figure out what it was. :'(
