The Krag-Jorgensen Model 1898 is just plain old-school awesome.
In its prime, the Krag-Jorgensen was the U.S. military service rifle.
Watch Hickok45 test out this revolutionary rifle at his target range.
This rifle was born when the world’s armies were dropping the big, slow, rifle cartridges and going with the new, smokeless, high-velocity cartridges.
The Krag-Jorgenson Model 1898 was on the cutting edge of technology. With a unique side-loading magazine, soldiers could load this rifle easily when in a prone position. This was very important when the enemy’s bullets were zinging overhead.
This former U.S. military rifle gets a workout on Hickok45’s target range. Not too bad for a rifle well over 100 years old!
