    Thanks Mark1 and BAR, but I've already passed on this rifle. Besides, spending $500+FFL transfer fees on the rifle, plus the cost of another receiver, plus the gunsmithing costs to do the job (I can't even put a screw in the wall accurately), plus the shipping and packaging costs, I might be approaching $700-$750 when I might be able to find another Kragicon without holes in the receiver. I'm not a pessimist, but just tossing that out.

    Thanks,
    Cliff

    I just saw a listing from our newest? sponsor Simpson LTD of an 1898 Kragicon without a barrel. their price is 595. You could swap in your barrel and pick the best of the the other parts, then sell the excess. The extra full length stock alone is worth several hundred dollars and could offset the cost quite a bit. Then again if you only want a shooter, a brand new barrel is available from criterion, and sights can be had. Would probably end up at the same cost, sans the "rebate" from selling an original stock.
    I don't think prices are likely to come down on these rifles - even for mixed parts shooters. Trolling gun broker for the last couple years even the sporterized krags have climbed in price - even before the mess of current events.
