I am sorry but I do not have any spare parts. My one Krag is a '98. Have you checked the Krag Collectors Association forum? A lot of those guys have parts.
I will do so. Thank you!

Happy belated birthday!

BTW, based on your name, you may be able to give me some advise. I own a 1896 Krag carbine that was sporterized. Trying to restore it and need to find a rear sight. You wouldn't have a spare you'd be willing to part with would you? :wink:

WTB in SC: 1896 Krag carbine parts

Hi Fellas - I purchased a 1896 Krag carbine about 20 years ago. It had been "slightly sporterized", but it was a great deal and I thought it would make a good project gun to restore to its original configuration. It is butter smooth (like all the Krag's) and shoots nicely. The stock is "original-ish...
