    SRS Search request

    Just won an 1898 Kragicon rifle at an online auction. The serial number is 204087. Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the quick reply. A friend of mine said he has a book he called "Serial numbers of martial arms number 4 or 5". He said it has serial numbers of 03s, 1917 & Trapdoors in it. Thought he remembered seeing Krags in it too. Is this a reliable source, honestly haven't heard of it before. Soon as he gets back home he would check to see if there were Krags in it. This is only my second Kragicon, my other was an early 1892 with the ramrod channel filled in. We parted ways some 20 years ago. It was quite accurate at 100 yards with heavy gas checked lead bullets. Think I still have the dies, bullets & brass, but not sure about the load data. Where do you find SRS info, are there books about Krag rifles you would recommend getting? How close matters? 100, 250 Plus or minus, or more like 5 or 10? Thanks again.

    That's the one I use but others here have newer updated info. The guns sometimes are issued in a group but you can't count on it. Only a suggestion if you don't hit a number. The numbers skip a few at times...

    Thanks Jim, My friend said I could have the book when he finds it, as he has no longer any use for it. When I had my other early Kragicon, it was just as a shooter. Had no access to on line info as I do today. Never new there was so many small variations in a rifle that was only in service some ten odd years, find this very interesting.

    Look the books up online, you'll see their value. That's a valuable gift he's giving.
