The 30/40 Krag will feed through the magazine with no problems, based on the one I did in 1976 and sold shortly thereafter.

To: D A MacArthur /C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional , illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of cr*p by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" really means.....

sorry for the late reply, 'stuff' came up, and interest was lost along the way, not like I had the money to feed these interests of mine anyway.
long story slightly less so, the project is shelved, I might get to it, I might dump it on my local gunsmith (the kind with the mill and lathe in the back) hard to tell.

First let me say that there is talk they are making new 303 barrels in Australia. It could be returned to factory. If not the next idea would be, the later LEs were chambered in .308.

the original rifle was built in the US by savage (one of the lend-lease guns). I doubt they'd do anything with it. and the barrel wasn't the only problem, no stock, shot barrel, layer of rust, all the springs were shot and the firing pin is rusted to the cocking knob.

some new information has come to light, it may have been in a fire, which would explain the rust and the collapsed springs.
if that's the case, then the next question is, should I just have somebody torch out the receiver so some moron can hurt themselves with it?

If you deactivate it, it could still be a wall hanger.

if I find a stock for cheap I'll just weld the bolt in and hang it, till then, it's staying in the locker.

How about a low pressure round, like the .45 ACP maybe? Now before you come over here and have me drug-tested for my suggestion, please do a quick read on the "DeLisle Carbine". You have no idea how bad I want one...
