Customer Question
I have a 30-40...

I have a 30-40 Krag Us Springfield Armory Model 1898 serial number 478347. It has 2 drilled holes in front of the chamber (scope)? and a missing front site. I believe it was changed to a sporting rifle.Where can I ind a goos gun smith to improve it? (I live in Elk Grove, CA) One gun Sith told me I was not worth repairing.

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

Should I have it repaired? What is it worth?

Hi,

I restore guns and did an 1895 Krag Carbine recently. It was shipped to me in PA from Colorado. As soon as I get the pictures uploaded to my computer I will post some of them here.

The rear sight was missing, the handguard was also missing. I bought the sight and made the hand guard, refinished all of the metal and the stock.
