Watch this Youtube video of a 1898 Springfield Krag .30-40 carbine rifle being shot by a female gun enthusiast. Then buy a 1896 version from Jacobsons Gun Center!
Or, better yet, buy from us by going directly to the Gunbroker.com listing and by there, now.
If you’re wondering what exactly is the difference between a 1896 and a 1898 Springfield Krag .30-40 rifle, it’s the exposed metal surrounding the bolt handle as shown below.
In the following picture of the 1896 Springfield Krag .30-40 rifle (the actual gun listed by JacobonsGunCenter.com linked above), you can clearly see that surrounding the bolt handle, there is this exposed metal component on the carbine.
In this screenshot of the 1898 Springfield Krag .30-40 shown in the attached YouTube video, you can barely see that the exposed metal component isn’t present.
Hope you learned something, today.
