U.S. Springfield Armory Model 1896 .30-40 Krag - Unmodified  Guns > Rifles > Antique (Pre-1899) Rifles - Ctg. Misc.
Description: Unmodified full length Model 1896 with 30" barrel. Serial number: 49302

Includes a bayonet stamped "1903" and also includes a scabbard for the bayonet. This rifle was my grandfather's, then my dads, then mine and has not been shot, or used in over 60 years. I'm not a collector and only want guns I want to go out and shoot on a regular basis, so I am auctioning this antique weapon.

I'm not a gun expert so I don't know how to rate it's condition, but I take good photos that show it's condition. the gun is in good condition considering it's age. There is a nick near the end of the barrel caused by taking the bayonet off. There is a ding in the forend of the stock also that you can see in the photos. The gun has not been gunsmithed, sporterized, shortened, or worked on in any way. The barrel looks pretty good to me and I would say the rifle is in good enough condition to go out and shoot, but I would have a gunsmith look at it before hand.

It does not include the cleaning kit that would have gone in the stock, but there is an opening for the cleaning kit in the metal butt plate. The leather sling deteriorated about 45 years ago when I was a kid. This is the rifle used by U.S. forces in the Spanish-American war.

Have fun bidding. Own a piece of history!
