Well, the Krag Carbine is at Muarry Anderson's shop with a few other ones.   Pretty area.  Hope to use it at the Muster.

WPG has both the M1887 leather sling, and the M1899  Mills Web sling.  Have both, like 'em both.  (Use da link!)

The 1887 is only on their ebay site for now.

The web sling was mostly found in the Philippines.

Hi

I remember seeing that people hated the web sling because it curled up.  The one I got is authentic the connections cause the web part to curl up a little.

Hi again

With respect to the care and feeding of the Krag.  My 1902 rifle sight was difficult to use, so I soaked it for a few hours in Kroil.  Now it turns a little easier, but with pliers.  Did fairly well at the range, but the sights are difficult to see at longer ranges.

See y'all in a few days.

Has anyone used one of the Krag receivers being sold by SARCO?   The price is right for me, but rest of the parts are too dear for a retirees budget. Thanks

Didn't know they had those.  From the looks they should be fine.  Probably the best source for the other parts is find a rifle that's had the receiver drilled and tapped.  Otherwise, you can just about go broke buying parts.
