Thank you for using Blue Book, and Just Answer!

My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help you.

Based on that serial number, that should be a Model 1896 Krag rifle that was made in 1898. It should be marked "U.S. Model 1896" and "Springfield Armory." The oil-finished walnut stock should have an inspector's date of 1898. It has a 30 inch barrel and is chambered n 30-40 Krag. 62,000 were made from 1896 through 1898.

I hope this helps.

Philip
