A furthering of the Krag-Jorgensen-designed Model 1892, the M1896 Springfield was one of a series of rifles that served as the standard US Army longarm until they were replaced by Springfield's new M1903. The Model 1896 magazine cut-off operates in a down position and the cleaning rod is moved to butt trap. An improved rear sight and tighter production tolerances gave better accuracy than earlier Krag rifles and the stock was made slightly thicker. This rifle has been modified to resemble a carbine. Its wood and metal are in fair condition and its bore is in good condition.
