Watch this segment of American Rifleman Television's "I Have This Old Gun" to learn about the history and development of the United States' first standard issue bolt-action rifle, the Model 1898 Krag–Jørgensen, chambered for .30-40 Krag.
The U.S. Krag-Jorgensen was America’s first bolt-action repeater chambered for a smokeless-powder cartridge. In the hands of American troops around the globe, the Krag played a small, but key, role in the rise of the “American Century.”
To celebrate the rifle's 125th anniversary in 2020, Winchester is releasing a special-edition Model 1895 lever-action rifle.
This "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV takes a look at the history of the Army's short-lived lever-action service rifle: the Winchester Model 1895.
Hornady makes practice of reaching back and “rescuing” great old cartridges that have been out of production for a while. This year, they answered the prayers of many old Krag shooters with a run of .30-40 Krag alongside all of its cutting edge introductions.
John M. Browning’s last lever-action design for Winchester—the Model 1895—was a dramatic departure from his previous Model 1886, 1892 and 1894 rifles, with their tubular magazines and side-loading gates.
