I have for sale or trade an 1898 .30-40 Krag rifle. It has been "sporterized" but it really needs to be redone. It was drilled and tapped for a scope, but then the holes were filled in (probably silver solder), so I got it with no sights at all, just the two tapped holes for the original ladder-type rear sight. I bought a rear sight off a surplus rifle website, but it still has no front sight. The gun has a neat box-style magazine, and it functions and shoots fine. I had planned to get a new stock and convert it to a carbine, but I moved a few years ago and don't have a shop any more. I can send you some pictures if you like. I have $350 in it ($250 for the gun and $100 for the sight). I would take $300 for it. I am also interested in trades. I live in the Houston area, but go back to FT Worth pretty regularly, and I have a deer lease near Centerville, so we can arrange a meeting if you're interested.
I have some pics at home, and I will add them later. I can also text or email pics.

Always interested in trades. Would like a small 9mm or .45 pistol, .22 revolver, or single-shot rifle like an H&R or CVA. Would also look at scopes, binos, and would trade for hunts.

Is the barrel bent. It sure looks like it in the full length picture

No it's not bent. I think it's an optical illusion because of the diagonal cuts on the gun case. I'll take a better picture and post it.

I thought I had this sold, but we couldn't get our schedules to mesh, so it's up again. Anybody interested in a real piece of history?

Back up. Anybody interested in a trade? I'm pretty much open to anything within reason.
