Title: Re: Krag hand guard

FWIW - Your damaged hand-guard is a rifle hand-guard for the model 1896 sight.

It could probably best be salvaged by cutting out some of the wood (straight edges - cut on an angle to create a bevel) and gluing an appropriately sized, walnut 'arch shaped' patch, (possibly cut from a damaged 1903 Springfield hand-guard).

I would glue the patch and front cracks using Brownell's Acraglas.
