Can anyone tell me about this bolt that came with a largely correct Springfield 1903 Mk.1. I think the bolt body is correct, but not sure of the rear portion (my reference soiurces seem to be full of errors).

Thanks - Tom

Can't post pictures on that board. Any idea what the "O" on the bottom of the bolt sleeve means?

You probably have to register on that forum and take the step of first posting your pictures on a free internet picture hosting website like photobucket.com, then link on jouster to that photobucket url.

Tom,

I was able to transfer your pictures to Jouster - take a look. The bolt body, at least, is legit - an L2 bolt from ca. 1919-1920, which would be good for most Mark Is, except the earlier ones.

For many of us, he certainly is. RtL is always helpful & friendly and willing to say when he is not sure of the answer.

That's right, Krag is only funning me. In my family, you only teased the people you liked!!

I WAS an expert in one field -- coming up with snappy, sarcastic remarks at dull teacher's meetings for 33 years. Probably explains the red carpet they had for me when I retired!!

:D

Of course, if you need an "expert" on Krags, just come on over the new Krag-Jorgensen forum and look me up.
