I brought home another Krag sporter from a gun show a couple of weeks ago. It has a sporter stock that looks like it goes back to the late Twenties, but doesn't seem to be a Sedgely or Stoegers. This Model 1899 has a 22 inch barrel that looks to be issue. It sports a Lyman #34 and a Sheard gold bead blade up front in the arsenal block. The stock is very tightly inletted but unmarked. The buttplate is a Winchester that has a trapdoor applied to it. The number 52 is stamped on both the plate and the underside of the trapdoor. Checkering is not fancy but passably well done. The only mark on the metal is a "P" at the chamber just under the woodline. The steel grip cap was placed next to a First Model Newton cap and it is a ringer. I got some pictures if anyone cares to post them.
I got it as another strictly cast bullet gun. I sighted it in this afternoon at a hundred yards, and the first group for record went into 1.25 inches with one a trifle out ( 311291 @1,600 fps).
If anyone thinks they know who did the work, I'd enjoy hearing about it.

Here are the pictures Krag 1902 sent me of his new sporter. Nice looking rifle, and I particularly like the shop made trap door buttplate. I seem to recall seeing a similar one on another rifle pictured on this forum.

John,

I think we may have all looked at an '03 with a similar butt plate at Tulsa but I'm not sure where it was. Might have been one that Monte had.

I just notice that trap is upside down. Don't they usually open at the bottom? confused

John,

I noticed the same thing this morning when I looked at it. I was on a site I couldn't log on from so couldn't comment. Looks like a military door added to the Win. butt plate and well done, but upside down IMHO.

Krag '02

Congrats on a nice clean looking rifle, and it sounds like it is still capable of doing the job.

The trapdoor on the Krag rifles open from the top. An ancient pull-through,complete with patch and bore brush was the surprise on this one.
