    Ammo

    Finally I found ammo! Since the country has gone zombie, everything is impossible to source, and ammo is on the top of the crazy list.

    I personally have a whole lot of ammo, except for the 30-40 Kragicon ammo. It's like really new condition, its been stored for awhile.

    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.
    This information sure is really important for the handguard, since the 1901 rear sight is specific to the rifle, finding the Handguard is difficult, keeping it in good condition is critical.

    Good Kragicon handguards seem to be bringing near 'gold prices', these days!

    This ladder assembly is harder to locate, I am going to have to keep at it. I just need the main body.

    Found a really nice stock.


    No cracks, no refinish, all original, really nice. This is a excellent find.

    Nice looking stock, the photo does not show the wood grain, but by the color, I suspect it is one of the Italianicon walnut ones.

    Here is a close up for the stock. I'm ready for the assembly soon. Kinda like Christmas.

    '99621' - That should be a solid & serviceable stock.

    I don't want to be a "Debbie Downer", but, it appears to me that your 'new' stock has been sanded and refinished.

    The 'finger-grooves' look rounded, not sharp, which is an indication the stock was refinished.



    The gloss on the stock suggests refinish.

    The lovely handguard, that you obtained recently, is American black walnut. You will have a contrast between the color of your stock and handguard.

    Attached is a picture of an Italianicon stock contrasted with a black walnut handguard. Note the sharp edges of the finger-grooves. Italian stocks often have a nice tigerstripe

    This Italian stock was stained to darken the light colored wood, probably at the unit level, for uniformity with the rest of the regiment's rifles.
