RIFLE. Cal. 30-40 Krag. S# 350467. Bbl. 22". This interesting carbine was a very late production and utilizes a Model 1901 ladder rear sight graduated to 2300 yards, which is marked "C" on the forward left side. Blade front sight with protective sight cover, which is also marked "C" on the left side. This carbine used the Model 1902 handguard. Plain barrel band. The bolt has the standard-type cocking piece, which replaced the earlier headless type. Safety is unmarked. The bolt handle recess is straight-cut. Walnut stock with interesting circular marking in cheek area, "5th U.S. C.A.V. COMPANY .E". The "5th" and the "E" are very faint compared to the balance of the worn marking. Stock is additionally marked with the boxed "JSA" and "1901" acceptance marks with the encircled script "P" under the grip. The trap buttplate cavity is drilled with three holes. CONDITION: stock has a well-worn original finish with light staining and numerous handling marks. There is an approximately 2" crack on the right side of the butt, extending forward of the buttplate. There is a small, approximately 3/4" crack behind the receiver tang. Single screw hole at the belly, approximately 1 1/2" ahead of the buttplate. The handguard has an approximately 1" crack on the top rear. Metal is worn, showing little original finish. Action parts are a notable silver gray. Fair, worn bore with frosted grooves. PROVENANCE: from the collection of Curtis H. Halvorson. (23-5896/RW). CURIO. $600-900.
