    I suppose it would be possible on a couple of them.
    However, keep in mind I bought a dozen. Of those maybe 3 are candidates for restoration.
    Not good odds if youíre only buying one!

    They are dirrrrrrrrty. Lots of rust, some pitting.
    About half had pretty decent barrels. I will likely part everything out so the barrels will sell OK.

    More than half were...

    Sight unseen, I can say with some level of certainty itís not worth $1,400.
    An average Krag in military dress goes for about half that.
    It has to be something special to pull $1,400.

    UPS is estimating these will arrive on Friday. I'd suspect Saturday though.

    I'm interested to see how they've packed a dozen rifles, haha.

    1. Thank you. This has been discussed previously in the thread.
    2. In fact, that's incorrect. One could say that 38 Super is less rimmed than .351 Winchester. See the attached images.

    I see these sell with full length stock in the neighborhood of $350.
    Frankly, those that bring $350 are in better shape than your example.

    The value of yours would be the sum of its parts. Maybe...

    Exactly and exactly my thoughts.
    Other than being shorter, the 38 Super is almost a dimensional clone of the 351. It's just a touch bigger throughout. I will not be surprised if it drops in...

    The barrel on this one is brand new.
    The .505" dimension came from a portion of the Cerrosafe that went down into the rifling.
