Somehow I was spoiled by the $250-$400 Krags sold just a few years ago, in the old South Store. Now they are $1250.

I know that you are getting a good deal, but I just can't pull the trigger.

The M1903/M1903A3s jumped from from $500 to $700; the Garands from $595 to $795, during the same time period.

Not criticizing the CMP, it's just my mindset. And, yes, I did buy a slew of Krags at those prices.

I understood it was the TMP, but there were only 10 at opening at the SS on Friday, none were the very nice Krags and I was at the TMP within 30 minutes of their restock and there were only 7 were present. Myself, a friend Jeff and a former Marine each purchased one, so only three Krags remaining, there was one of the really nice Krags remaining in the rack plus one on hold behind the counter, that MAY have been your friends which would make the numbers correct.... I’m not questioning anything that anyone saw I’m just a little confused because there were so few of them. Would really like to see a picture of his purchase, he could have gotten the last one. Dis see or hear of four more present in the store. I can only report what I see or what’s reported to me by a very reliable source. I made the mistake years ago of reporting what someone said was going to be at the store, can’t remember the type rifles but lots of people we’re excited that they were going to be in the store at opening. When the store opened there were none and none ever showed up... I learned a valuable lesson that time, don’t report it unless I’m 100% it’s going to be there.

But I heard it on the internet, it has to be true :-)

When he brings it over I'll post some pics.
I'm comfortable from his description it's one of the as-new ones.

I wish I had gotten in on that deal.

I think your right the more I think about it. I saw one behind the counter with a name tag and that would leave four more. I think I got there after him. What I didnít understand in the post was that there were 4 additional that would make 9, but they only had 7 Krags in the inventory. Iím tracking now.
