Lovely Krag and the Italian walnut stock is "molto bella!!!"  The wood, she is like a Ferrari or Sophia Loren of Italiano walnut stocks!

Thanks! Bill had collected an entire long rack of Krags with Italian Walnut stocks on them. All of them were 1898 Models I believe.
Maybe this was the only 1896 model stock he'd seen made of Italian Walnut. It’s the only one I've ever seen.

I haven't ever fired this rifle.

It would be interesting to know what the Springfield Armory woodworkers and stockers thought about working with the Italian walnut blanks?

Italian walnut sure makes for a spectacular Krag!

Maybe you can start a new post. If there is one thing this forum likes its "eye-candy".

I tried that and it didn’t work. Said I’d posted my quota or some sort of thing.  Huh

I've gotten the same message and deleted some of my posts to try and free up space for others.

I guess, I should send the KCA a big 'Check' sometime to help defray some of the expense of maintaining this wonderful site.
