Don't know what other American patents Krag held but this one was interesting.

Dutchman,

Definitely interesting, he and several other Norwegian designers came up with designs for the upcoming pistol trials - which ended with Norway adapting a modified M1911 in August 1914. The picture shows some of Krag's pistols.

Somewhere in my patents collection, I have a copy of the US patent he co-held on the original Krag rifle design. It's U.S. Pat. No. 492,212, issued February 21, 1893.C/

I haven't found an earlier one but this is the first I found in 1890 and appears to be the 1889 Danish Krag. Patents in the U.S. patent database for foreign patents most often were patented after the year model in Europe. I found this to be true of Paul Mauser patents, too.
