Absolutely true!!!! I will have a hard time parting with my "children" but just looking at them is not as exciting as finding them. I saw a whacked Krag on Gunbroker about 5 years ago. But, the front sight looked good, and the barrel length - by careful proportioning of the photo (this trick only works reliably on full 90 degree shots without camera distortion) - appeared to be 26". Hit the BIN button at $350. Could hardly wait for it to come. The rear sight was clearly a 1901, but photos were few and too blurry to see much detail - would it be the rare one? Upon arrival: YESSSS!! Still haven't stretched the stock, but I will.
