Springfield 1898 Board of Ordnance
Posted by Sean Engman on Friday, 28 October 2011, at 11:15 a.m.
I came across this page in search of information on a rifle I just picked up. Here is the information I have:
Springfield 1898 .30-40 Krag
Sat in a safe for the last 60 years. The gent I purchased it from stated "It was Grandpa's rifle and was overseas"
The serial is 320492
Barrel Length is 26"
Sights were replaced with Redfield peep sights (front post and rear)
Stock appears to be original minus the upper hand guard.
Stamped "U" on the barrel band
Stamped "7" on the underside of bolt handle
Stamped "l" "3" and two other undiscernable symbols on back of bolt handle
Any information would be helpful. It came with a WWII Jeep Scabbard that has all of the original hardware.
