Default Picked up a Krag

I picked out one of the $200 Krags today from the NS. Looked at the two remaining, and picked out the one with original finish on receiver. The other one sported a blued receiver.

I compared it to the four $450 Krags, and there were two differences. One difference was the holes in the sideplate for the $450 Krags, which were drilled to hold the brass inserts for blanks. The $200 Krags did not have the sideplate holes or inserts. The other difference was the $450 Krags had a safety. The $200 Krags did not. No other differences noted. The $200 Krags were by far the better deal. Safeties can be had for less than $250.

No sights on the gun, but overall I'm happy. Bolt is in very nice shape, all screws had good slots, and other metal pieces were in good shape with no rust or pits. Stock was beat up, but sported nice tiger stripes under all the bruises. Bore was actually decent - mostly shiney and gauged a 2 at the muzzle.

Under all the ugly is a decent Krag for the $.

You found a Krag at the North Store??? Congratulations! Every time I've been there (about twice a year) all they've had were two or three really beat up, cut down barreled receivers for $150 each!

I don't understand the $400/$200 thing. Krag prices are listed on the sales page as $450 for MKRAGX and $350 for MKRAGY. What's up with this, Mike?
