    Thank goodness there are not to many people out there dying to sporterize a nice rifle anymore. the 30/40 has moved to the back of the closet for most people if they have ever heard of one. But there are still those who would CHOP a nice rifle to create a Carbine along with a cool story about some history with the cavalry.

    The scary thing is the type of folk that would do that is no longer the type of folk that does decent work.
    Not many guys out there doing work like this anymore:


    I've shown that carbine a few times on the forum but I love it and love showing it

    You could shave with the rifling and use the rest of the bore as your mirror

    Beautifully done sporter. Some of the old jobs were very well done and are still great shooters putting meat on the table every year..... That you can find ammo. You have to be dedicated to spend the money to practice a few rounds and then hunt.

    It must've been a trip hunting with your original rifle shown. That big ol' 30" barrel -- you could poke the deer/moose in the eye with that thing haha!

    Yeah when we grew up each of us boys got to use Uncles Kragicon when we passed Hunters Safety and went for our first year. I Needed a Tree to rest the thing I was only a 102lb 12yr old that was even height with the rifle. I`m sure it looked funny as can be but i can tell you I was so proud to use it I felt 10ft tall. She only gets a handful of shots a year at the range these days.

    It's hard not to feel a little strength from our ancestors from these old rifles. It's like grabbing hold of a time machine. The men that carried these, the lives saved, the lives taken, the families fed. It's sobering to think of what they've been a part of.

    From the pictures, it would appear that your rifle is a M92/96...that is a M1892 rifle that was converted to to M96 configuration but using the original stock. I have a M92/96 that is a SRS "hit" having been with the the 25th Infantry Bicycle Troops in 1897.

    So my number falls in between the numbers listed to The Dakota Infantry Comp. Were they sent in Blocks of numbers? Just wanting to narrow down the history. Any additional Input is great. Thank You ALL.
