antique M1898 US Springfield Krag rifle. Serial number 122118. Metal parts show average wear and use with a brown patina. Handguard and stacking swivel are absent. Nice cartouche is present in stock with date of 1899. Wood overall shows light wear and use with minor handling marks overall, a small glued crack by the lower band on left side, and a couple well worn slivers in the forearm edges in front of the receiver. Stock has been "duffle bagged", or cut below the lower band to facilitate storage and transport. It looks as if someone tried to glue it, we have made no attempt at restoration and are planning on shipping it disassembled for safest delivery. Appears mechanically good. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
