OK, great. I am going to suggest Maxon Shooters Supplies & Indoor Range. They don't specifically list any particular brand of guns that they work on, but the gunsmiths have an excellent reputation in your area for the quality of their work.

    Maxon is not what I am looking for. They do not deal in late 1800 and pre-1900 weapons. Thanks for trying.

    I will send your question to customer service for a refund.

    What kind of work do you need done? There are not many of us that restore, repair the older guns. You may have to ship it to a qualified gunsmith.

    If you are looking for someone specifically with Krag experience, you'll have to send the gun out. I found someone in Washington state that has good experience with Krags.
