    I have a .30-40 Krag that I inherited from my grandfather when he passed a few years ago. U.S. Springfield Armory. 1898. It's in remarkably good condition for its age. The thing that's always kinda bugged me is that it was sporterized. My grandfather picked it up in the Marshall Islands in WWII. HE didn't have it sporterized...he came by it that way.

    I have thought about having it restored, but I always inevitably talk myself out of it.

    My question for y'all:

    Should I have it restored?

    One man I met suggested that it may have actually been sporterized originally (shortly after factory production) and may not have been a recent thing. Anyone have any information on this?

    I'm just not sure it's worth the effort to have it reversed. Not to mention the money and so forth.

    I think you might be right. The distortion in the eyes (that NW to SE slant) led me to imagine a long snout, and to therefore think "canine," but without that distortion, I don't think I would have been so quick to make that conclusion. I also figured, based on the supposed presence of a long snout, that a tail is simply not in view in this pic, but if it's a cat then for sure it may not be there at all.

    (Anti-gunners keep out!! This is not the thread for you.)
    I have a variety, but my go-to weapon is a 357 magnum Dan Wesson with interchangeable barrels. I prefer the wheel guns.

    My 108-year-old Argentina Mauser carbine kicks like a mule.

    And my Winchester M-1 Carbine is a piece of history.

    There are others scattered around the house.

    How does a Winchester Carbine differ from a Sharps Carbine? Just curious. I am a fan of Winchesters in general, but I wasn't aware that they manufactured a Carbine.

    There were many manufacturers of the M-1 Carbine during WWII, including GM, IBM, and the Rock-Ola juke box company. I think the Winchester falls in the best end of the manufacturers. Mine was made in 1944.

    Ah, ok...I was thinking older. I believe Sharps only manufactured carbines up until about 1880.

    There was a big gun show in Las Vegas in the past few days.

    I had the opportunity to shoot a few things during my time in the military, including a 105mm Howitzer, 81mm mortar, 50-caliber machine gun mounted on a light tank, 40mm grenade launcher, and the M-60 machine gun — plus the standard issue weapons.

    Sadly, I was unable to attend. It's probably for the best...my pocketbook doesn't like it when I go to those.
