Sorry. I looked all though my Mallory bible and didn't see your serial number at all. Then I checked it out and I only have the first edition. Someone else will need to chime in.

I would think if Mallory had it printed in his book, he would have had it in one of his SRS manuals.

Hope someone else can find what you're looking for.

the cool thing is there are carbines floating around out in the wild waiting to be discovered even though the paper records are long gone but do not have backup of Mr. Mallory and his research.

Ya'll need to take pity on a poor Krag-nut who's a friend to one and all.  Someone with lots of Carbines should send ole Paul and anonymous Christmas gift!  I'm sure he'd be eternally grateful... and sing praises to all!

I'm updating the M1898 carbine list since it looks like a new poster has lucked into an authentic one. If this assessment changes, I'll correct it. Also, I found a posting by a KCA owner from the UK who has a correct M1898 Krag carbine and added him to this prestigious list. If I have missed anyone, please chime in!

So we can add yet one more to the small list of authentic M1898 carbines owned by KCA members!

We need more. 11/5002= .0022%

Pictures of my M1898 SRC are attached. Serial number is  134317. It is a well used example, but I think it is an original, un-molested M1898 Saddle Ring Carbine. The stock has a 1898 cartouche and a M1896 C marked rear sight. I will be listing it in the Classified Section soon.

I found these 1898 carbine in the KCA database:
118894

You all might consider adding you serial numbers to the database.  Or allow me too
