gotta 30-40 Krag rifle...serial #357XX ... cut down rifle or a carbine?? I know ..I know.. lots of fakes, and so few real carbines were made. you folks be the judge.
All I know is....
from serial #.. it is in the correct range to be a carbine..
The barrel is 22" long
front sight is a rifle sight
sling swivels were added by my uncle
may be re-blued???
wood probably re finished

shes a beauty , if correct i think the value is gone as a collector because of the reblue and such , but its a keeper as a fine example of an american rifle and for its family heritage ,

i do not know enough about krag carbines[i know all 1899s are carbines] to say much more , but the serial numbers say it all in these , and a huge number found their way to deer camp in one form or another , they are a fine rifle and im proud to have owned the four and to still own the two i have now
