Krag Model 1896 Carbine
"Early 1895 Carbine"
Also known as the Rough Rider Carbine
Found to be listed with Springfield Research with the following information
Records of the Army Chief of Ordnance office showed that this Krag Carbine was sold by Raritan Arsenal, Metuchen, NJ, between July 15 and July 31st, 1922. Unfortunately that was all the info they had. Most likely this was someone's hunting rifle for many years following 1922. An interesting note is that documents in 1911 showed the Government was selling 1896 Carbines for the princely sum of $5 each. Most fetch well over $1000 today.
