I did find a stereographic view of the 6th online but the resolution wasn't enough to tell what they were armed with. As the 6th did no fighting I doubt that they had Krags. Having said that, they were garrison troops in Cuba and may very well had been issued Krags for that duty. Whether 1898 or the 1896 is the question. Does Ohio have a National Guard Museum which might answer the question?
