SOLD SOLD (15/05) RARE, ROOSEVELT’S ROUGH RIDERS ERA U.S. Army Springfield Krag–Jorgensen Model 1898 .30 Army (.30-40) Calibre Bolt Action Rifle With Correct Side Mounted Box Magazine. **UK/EU DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED** Sn 15275 - 15275
The Krag–Jørgensen is a repeating bolt action rifle designed by the Norwegians Ole Herman Johannes Krag and Erik Jørgensen in the late 19th century. It was adopted as a standard arm by Denmark, the United States and Norway. About 300 were delivered to Boer forces of the South African Republic. Like many other armed forces, the United States military was searching for a new rifle in the early 1890s. A competition was held in 1892, comparing 53 rifle designs including Lee, Krag, Mannlicher, Mauser, and Schmidt–Rubin. The trials were held at Governors Island, New York, and the finalists were all foreign manufacturers—the Krag, the Lee, and the Mauser. The contract was awarded to the Krag design in August 1892, with initial production deferred as the result of protests from domestic inventors and arms manufacturers. In spite of this the Krag–Jørgensen was again selected, and was awarded the contract. The primary reason for the selection of the Krag appears to have been its magazine design, which could be topped off as needed without raising and retracting the bolt (thus putting the rifle temporarily out of action). While many other rifles of its era use an integral box magazine loaded by a charger or stripper clip, the magazine of the Krag–Jørgensen is integral with the receiver featuring an opening on the right hand side with a hinged cover. Instead of a charger, single cartridges are inserted through the side opening, and are pushed up, around, and into the action by a spring follower. Around 500,000 "Krags" in .30 Army (.30-40) calibre were produced at the Springfield Armory in Massachusetts from 1894 to 1904. The Krags in .30 Army found use in the Boxer Rebellion, the Spanish–American War and the Philippine–American War. Two-thousand rifles were taken to France by the United States Army 10th–19th Engineers (Railway) during WW1. In U.S. service, the Krag was most notably used in combat operations in Cuba with Roosevelt’s Rough Riders (a nickname given to the United States Volunteer Cavalry, raised in 1898 for the Spanish–American War. Theodore Roosevelt, who would later become U.S. President had pushed for American involvement in the Cuban War of Independence. He joined the Volunteer Cavalry which became known as "Roosevelt's Rough Riders”). Krags served as the U.S. military's primary rifle for only nine years, when it was replaced by the M1903 Springfield rifle in 1903. This rare U.S Model 1898 Krag rifle is in very good condition. Its metalwork is undamaged with excellent original finish and its woodwork is complete with just the knocks bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. It is crisply stamped on the breech housing 'U.S.’ (Army) above ‘Model 1898 Springfield Armory’ & number ‘413185’. It has a steel butt plate with trap, bayonet lug, correct side mounted box magazine with hinged cover, block & post fore sight, adjustable graduated rear sight & sling swivels. Deactivated to UK / EU specification, the rifle’s bolt action & cocking and firing actions work correctly. The price for this rare U.S. Army service rifle includes UK / EU deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 15275

1948-1950, British War Dept Factory Sectioned Cut-Away Lee Enfield No4 Mk1 .303 Calibre, SKN 2092 Armourer’s Instructional Rifle Action, Shoulder Stock & Part Barrel. D 1465 - D 1465
This is a now scarce Lee Enfield .303 No4 "SKN" Armourers Instructional Action. Approximately 2500 official SKN No4 actions were manufactured between 1948 & 1950 utilizing downgraded components from condemned Service rifles. Quite a number of skeleton actions were assembled by the Gun trade and by REME workshops, but these lack the official SKN number on the left hand wall of the action body. The contract was originally given to ROF Enfield, but following legal action involving the alleged un-licensed Government manufacture of the L2 Sterling SMG, manufacture was given instead to Sterling Engineering as part of the legal settlement. Sterling then sub-contracted the work to List Engineering of Dagenham, which completed SKN's returned to ROF Enfield for inspection and service acceptance. This example is stamped with the correct SKN designation (see page 230 of the Lee Enfield Story By Skennerton) ‘SKN 2092’. The stock has a brass butt plate with trap. Component parts were carefully sectioned at the factory, with cutaway areas painted red. The piece measures 27 ¾” overall length. This SKN is in excellent overall condition. The bolt action works as it should and it cocks and dry fires. As a sectioned instructional piece not capable of discharging, no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Price includes UK delivery. D 1465
