I bought this the other day it is a Springfield 1898 30-40 Krag in great shape, the wood is all there and the metal is in nice shape.

Nice. I really enjoy my '96 Krag. I can't shoot it for anything, but it does have one slick action.

Great to see one in its original configuraton. Now you just need to get a Norwegian model in 6.5 to keep it company.

Collectable or shooter?

That's a nice one for sure. Always wanted to put one in my stable , but the stars and the moon never aligned just right.
