I've owned and / or held probably 500+ Krag Jorgensen rifles in my hands over the past 25 years before I completed my small collection of a half dozen guns. Normally the tops of the extractors are beautifully polished to a mirror finish and then fireblued, but several rifles I've seen have very rough sanding marks just behind the retaining pin lug of the extractor. These marks are underneath the original blueing / heat treat.

Whats my point? Never underestimate even a top shelf arsenals ability to hire a schleprock who thinks theres no mixup a belt sander cant fixup.
