    My opinion is that Krag carbines often have Rifle Rear-Sights because a previous civilian owner switched the more valuable carbine sight with a cheaper (and similar) rifle sight in order to make more...

    Most Krag carbine stocks will have three-rod holes in the butt-trap. (This was so the machining operations were the same for rifle and carbine stocks).

    Some early thin 'long-wrist' model 1896...

    It is fun making a useful Krag out of discarded parts or a poorly done 'sporter'.

    It is not as easy, now, and much more expensive than in the past.

    But, probably the Krags, that I enjoy and...

    Geez! I did not intend to offend or make enemies out of any forum members.

    If a statement is wrong or incorrect, it can be regarded as "false", with no evil intent attached or suspected of another...

    Somewhere along this thread, it was falsely stated that only the model 1896 carbines had the saddle-ring (and bar).

    This is incorrect. The 5,002 model 1898 carbines, when originally built, had a...

    Examples of the U.S. Krag (brass) rifle muzzle-cover, the carbine front-sight cover, and the Parker system gallery front-sight.

    Well '1903collector', your questions leave me confused!

    FWIW - The U.S. brass muzzle-cover/front-sight protector was intended for full-length (30" barrel) Krag infantry rifles.
    IIRC - They are...

    FWIW - You can try rubbing the shiny wood finish with linseed oil and pumice to dull the sheen to a mat finish.

    IMHO - Your stock looks kind of neat and has been wearing its finish for a long time. In the photos, your Krag has a pleasant veteran look to it. There are worse outcomes than 'just letting it be'. ...

    You can always load the .458 case with 300 grain Hornady jacketed soft points and a stout .45/70 smokeless load intended for modern rifles.

    That would give you a powerful, yet tolerable &...

    FWIW - I treat the two guard screws differently, when reassembling a Krag.

    With both trigger-guard screws loose and the handguard and (loose) barrel-band on the Krag, I hold the carbine or rifle...

    You picked-up a very honest looking Model 1898 Krag in nice condition. Enjoy!

    I can't find a photo of a compete model 1888 rod-bayonet, online. There are some implements that function with the small end of the rod.
    So, I imagine there is a small thread or ribbing on the...

    Not inverted.

    A quick search of known parts dealers would indicate a loose trapdoor ramrod-bayonet is no easy or cheap matter to find or replace. It does not appear to be reproduced either.

    The rifle you are considering, in addition to having the latch on backwards, has a rod that is not a model 1888 trapdoor bayonet.
    There appear to be six areas on the 'odd' rod that have knurling.

    Not my area of expertise and I have no dog in the fight, but there is something very unusual about the rod on that trapdoor.

    The rod-bayonet 'tip' normally looks like this attached photo. (I am...

    It is a rod-bayonet rifle, but appears to have some type of custom 'rod' (and not a bayonet-rod) in place?

    IMHO - The metal of the OP's Steven's/Savage actually looks rather good. The 'case-color' on these shotguns was never very deep even when factory new.
    Any surface rust or dried crud on the 'blued'...

    If I understand correctly, the OP obtained a nicer model 1896 Krag some time ago. We have not been shown photos of the new acquisition.
