I have a chance to buy a Nor. Krag that was sporterized years ago, It`s in decent shape but the bore is bad. I`m thinking of rebarreling it but I have two questions. I know that it`s threaded LH and it has LH twist. I think all new barrels have RH twist, any problems with this , have any of you guys rebarreled a Nor. Krag ? Thanks in advance for any help,Paul

Well I had a Norwegian Krag that had a bad headspace issue. My gunsmith told me that the fix was to buy a new unthreaded free barrel. Yes the thread is left handed but the rifling is like all other rifles.

Drop me a line if you need more info or if you need my gunsmith's website or phone no.

I have an excellent shooting Norwegian Krag in 257 Roberts. I purchased it from a local gunsmith who built the rifle years ago. Years ago he had a customer come in with a newer Ruger in 257 Roberts who wanted it rebarreled to a larger caliber. The Ruger barrel was mounted on my Krag. I don't shoot the 257 Roberts +P but the normal loading does just fine and the rifle is extremely accurate.
