Danish Krag M89 8x58R Caliber Rifle
This is a Danish Krag M89 8x58R Caliber Bolt Action Rifle. The M89 has a mechanism based on the Mauser action, but the rounds were loaded through a loading gate which hinged forward. The rifle has a 39 1/4” stock, has two barrel bands with a stacking swivel and sling swivels, and 33” barrel with front and rear sights. The serial number of the rifle is “116xx”. The overall length of the rifle measures 52 1/4”.
The barrel, receiver, front sight base, and rear sight base have matching serial numbers. But the bolt does not match. The receiver is marked “GVERFABRIKEN KJOBENHAVN 1891 M.89.” The bore has significant pitting and in poor to fair condition. There is rust and pitting on the buttplate, trigger, trigger guard, action, bolt, barrel, and other metal components.
The stock appears to have been shortened to 39 1/4”. It has a 7/8” crack on the right side of the tang and a 2” chip near the tip. The left side has a 1/4” repaired crack and 3/8” chip on the tip, 5/8” deep dent on the butt of the stock and 1 1/2” and 3” deep scratches. There are several dings, scuffs, and small dents on the stock. Overall, the rifle is in fair used condition. Please check the photos below. Sold As-Is.
