Westley Richards Norwegian Krag-Jørgensen M1894 sporting rifle

Sauce : TheExplora.com

Manufactured by Steyr in Austria c.1896-97 and sporterized by retailer Westley Richards & Co. in London.
.256/6,5x55mm Nor. 5-round half-capsule magazine, bolt action repeater, checkered sporterized stock, express sights.

An uncommon sight on Westley Richards’ catalog, this Norwegian Krag rifle was fitted with a lighter stock that shows off its capsule magazine. This fixed magazine design wraps around the action and can be topped off at any moment, regardless of whether it’s half-full or if the action is open or closed, but at the cost of being incompatible with stripper clips.
