Actually, it could have seen both.

Most of the SRS listings - including those anywhere close to that number, have militia citations from the SAW period. Bottom line - we'll never know for sure. The arms were kept in service as long as they were usable. When the Krag came out, it went to the RA, who passed their TDs down to the States.

They took pride in frugality in those days.
