Some more Krag-Jorgensen firearms! Following the conquest of Phillipines during the Spanish-American War, the americans faced the Moro (muslim) rebellion in the northen island of Mindanao. To counter them, the local Constabulary was reorganized, trained and equiped with US made weapons. Among this new weaponry was the Phillipines Constabulary carbine Model 1899:
Also in 30-40 Krag, it was shorter than the rifle, but able to use a bayonet. It was a handy weapon well adapted to the light physical constitution of the native filipino people.
The first country to adopt the Krag-Jorgensen rifle was Denmark in 1889, which was chambered for a 8 mm rimmed round.
Unlike the American and Norwegian versions, the Danish rifle had a magazine door that opens to the side, not down. The arming device also differs, instead of the knob, the Danish had a Gras/Lebel like lever. The barrel was covered by a metallic shroud, but was handguardless in all its length. It was equipped with a T-backed epee-bayonet.
The short version of the rifle was a very similar carbine destined for the artillery, and like the full length rifle, was equipped with a bayoneta (unlike the cavalry carbine which was unable to mount a blade). Both rifle and carbine are depicted with the long M1915 bayonet. Cheers.
