    Thanks for everything, Numrich said it was the correct part, but we do make mistakes.

    I've been everywhere looking for the part and I can't find it. Last time this happened it took me 6 months to find one.

    I guess I will have to keep looking Periodically for the part. Now I need to focus on the wood.

    The Kragicon sight-slide photos that Numrich has on their website, listed as "1901" parts, are actually for the model 1901 sight.



    Granpa's Gun Parts has the top-plate, eye-piece, and other parts for the Krag 1901 sight, but, apparently not the actual slide.

    I didn't know how confusing that was, the ladder for the 1901 even has two different models, same ladders just the numbers are different. Actually, reading Poyer's book helps me out but it's still a lot of different ladder and base assembles for the total Krag rifle production.

    On another good note, I checked the No Go gauge one the rifle and it passes excellent, that's awesome to have it correct so I can check it off my list.

    I made a mistake in my last post.
    The Numrich Arms photos of Kragicon slide parts are mislabeled as being for the 1901 sight.
    In actuality, the parts are for the slide of the model 1896 rifle sight.

    I figured out what was happening. I still need that main part with the knob, everything else I have.

    Eventually I will find it, just a matter of time.

    Nice clean looking handguard, no cracks for a change. You got coins in those springs I hope?

    Store the handguard with a Quarter twisted into the rear clip and a Penny twisted into the front clip, to counteract the spring tension.

    Kragicon handguards have been known to crack while off the rifle.

    Never 'snap' a Krag handguard 'off' or 'on' a barrel.

    With the sight and stock taken off of the barreled/action, the Krag handguard can be moved toward the muzzle to relieve the tension of the clips and easily removed.

    A handguard can be put on the barrel at the muzzle and pushed back into position, to install.

    A little solvent or CLP on the barrel metal aids the process.
