I love the wierd old stuff

Like a Krag, but instead of loading singly you just sloppily slap in an enbloc clip of 7. Sweet as you please.

Imagine if this rifle had won the Army contract instead of the Krag?    Probably wouldn't have changed much.  Except it would have gotten US soldiers kinda used to having 8 rounds to shoot instead of 5.  The Springfield 03 might have been pressured to be more like the 10 shot Lee Enfield.  Maybe.

That is cool. I have owned Krag's and I love them ( I bought my first one for 50 bucks). Too bad I never ran across one of these. Especially if you could have found a few of the extra clips for it.
