    Hmm. I think so. Seems I read a forum post recently talking about how they've added the Shopping Cart functionality. Was that on this forum?

    Recently, Schwartz is back to making hand-guards. The prices have gone up a bit.

    That is a nice looking Kragicon. The barrel appears to be a shortened Krag barrel (not an adapted 1903 Springfield barrel).

    With a Krag rear-sight & screws, appropriate hand-guard (Krag hand-guards are sight model specific), and a model 1898 magazine cut-off lever, it would look like an "NRA/DCM Carbine", as produced by Benicia Arsenal in the late 1920's.

    None of this would increase the value of your Krag, beyond the value of the added parts and your personal happiness.

    FWIW - I would just keep it, use it, and enjoy it, "the way it is".

    BTW - An original U.S. Krag rear-sight will probably have to be set for 400 yards to compensate for the 1903 Springfield front-sight, which is taller than the Krag front-sight.

    Thought there was something to them not being there a while back. I had a carbine I wanted to replace the handguard on, but sold it so problem solved.
