    A lot of these went to the schools. That's what the concentric circles over the mum indicate. It was removed from military service. On the good side, this doesn't appear to be one they converted...

    That one's a little rough. Most of the metal finish is gone. That being said, I'd love to find one cheap. I've always liked the Krag and would like one of the cut down sporters. In general, I...

    One that I'd like to pick up someday. Would like to get the Gras conversion to 8mm Lebel also. Interesting transitional rifles when they were too cheap to just make the new ones.

    Supposedly cooking doesn't kill it as it's a protein that once it is in something is always there. Which is why we aren't to move parts of the deer out that may have it in them like the brain,...

    Now I'm facing the dilemma of getting it tested for CWD or not. I'm probably just being paranoid. First they tell you there isn't a single case of a human contracting it and in the next sentence...

    Looking at it more closely, not Finnish. Muzzle ring is too short. Condition moves it into the Turkish ballpark now. They are often scrubbed with few markings and use the short muzzle ring.
