In excellent all matching condition, we have a very scarce, non-import marked M1889 Danish Krag Service rifle in 8m/m Danish Krag. This rifle was made in 1899 and went into service in 1900. This still has the impossible to find sling as well. This was the standard Danish Army Service rifle at the outbreak of WWII and this rifle is unit marked to an Infantry Regiment. After the Surrender of Denmark in the spring of 1940 these rifles ended up in German hands who issued them to coastal defense and garrison troops who occupied the country for the duration of the war.
These Danish Krag rifles are not easy to locate, and you rarely ever see them matching and this nice. The bore is decent and the stock has not been sanded. Ammunition is available now from Buffalo Arms so you can shoot this if you wish, after having it inspected by a gunsmith, of course. This is one of the more obscure infantry weapons from WWII but it is certainly one that any advanced WWII or Scandinavian military collector will find very appealing.
