Default 1899 Krag Carbine

http://cmpauction.thecmp.org/detail....-Armory-352066

It will be interesting to see what this goes for.

It looks like only the receiver is from a carbine.

The stock looks like a cut down rifle stock; the barrel a cut down rifle barrel with a M1903 front sight.

The rear sight is a 1902 rifle sight; at least I cannot see the "C" designation.

Similar to one I bought at the South Store a few years ago. Not a collector piece except as a place holder.

It does look like a commercial parts 'school gun' assembled on a M1899 carbine receiver. The stock is similar to the U.S. arsenal made school guns and Constabulary Carbines, but lacks the workmanship. The model 1903 front sight is a give away of a non carbine barrel.

I agree with Tom. It looks like a Bannerman to me.

Looks like an 1898 rear sight. Nice stock with strong cartouches.

Will go for a good bit with the CMP Auction premium.
