    Irrelevant anyway. Not all US Martial firearms are marked “US PROPERTY.”
    The Kragicon is one of those that is not.

    Regardless, I am unfamiliar with the code you’ve mentioned but I doubt it applies to obsolete equipment like 120 year old rifles.

Two questions here, 1) would the govt still be interested in recovering this rifle? in other words is there a statute of limitations involved? Does the fact it was stolen prevent future sales? 2) Being it is sort of a "pirate" rifle what would it be worth and what would be the best way to sell it? Thank You
    Who is SRS?

    I don't want to hijack your thread but I have a krag carbine with a rather interesting history.....I would like to know more about.

    I will snap some photos and start a thread in the next few days.

    "SRS" stands for Springfield Research Services. It was data collected by Franklin Mallory and others on U.S. Military Arms, recorded in official documents, by serial number.

    This data was published in a series of books, now out of print. The Kragicon data also appears in the appendix of the Second Edition of Mallory's book, "The Krag Rifle Story".

    Only a small percentage of U.S. Krags made, appear in the SRS tables, (out of almost 1/2 million made). The entries are rather brief in most cases and show only a brief glimpse of a rifle or carbine's use.

    Sometimes, the entries show an arm being issued to a specific unit. Sometimes an entry indicates 'official destruction' at a Army Depot or Sale from Raritan Arsenal.

    Upon his death, Frank Mallory's research was purchased. The owner, I believe, provides a 'documentation letter service' that is said to be slow and expensive.

    I have never personally used this service. I do have a copy of the 2nd edition of the "KRS".

    I ordered one for the “Kentucky Kragicon” that was posted about a while back. I went with the basic letter and it was only $50 or something like that and came in just a few weeks.

    It told me nothing more than we already knew but I wanted the documentation for insurance reasons.
    I was happy with the service/cost.



    One thing I’m not clear about is what would happen if one sent in a number they didn’t have records for. Would they say “we don’t have records, thanks.” Or “we don’t have records. That’ll be $50.”
