  • Hello Folks, I have a 1898  Springfield Krag that I purchased with a bad barrel and didn’t realize it until it was cleaned well. I have waited to see if anybody had a  original. replacement barrel for it for some time , and so far , nothing available . I noticed you have a 1903A3 barrel  that says. .308 caliber for Krag . Does  that mean It wound safely fit and fire on my 30/40 receiver ? I’d rather have a .308 krag than a tomato stake for the garden . Please let me know . Thank you for your time . Have a good Independence Day !

The extractor on the Krag only works on rimmed cases.I suppose you could have a gunsmith re cut the chamber to 30-40 Krag.
