    1899 Carbine?

    Auction arms has a Kragicon listed for sale, item # 10255508. It is listed as a 1899 Krag Phillipiine Constabulary Carbine. The serial number is 228290. This is way too low for a constabulary carbine as I understand. I also believe that this carbine has been discussed before on this forum. Fake? 5MF can you join in and educate us? Bill Hughes

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Can't be too low for a constabulary carbine, or alternatively, a "school gun". They were made on 1899 actions. All the 99s were carbines. The barrel cut and the stock could be faked.

    The rifle looks all original and fine to me. It is a little lower serial number than mine.

    It's a school gun. One of the nicer done ones.

    There are, to the best my knowledge, no PC rifles in the US. Brophy's otherwise excellent book is simply incorrect on those.
