Selling for $400 - Trade ... What do you got?

This is a restored, sporterized Springfield M1898 Krag-Jorgensen Carbine, chambered in .30-40 Krag with a 22-inch barrel and 5 round capacity. The metal has a high luster deep blue finish with no rust, dents, dings, or scratches (but some light handling marks from usage and age). The inside of the rifle’s magazine had some light surface rust which was removed. The stock is a sporterized M1898 Krag wood stock, complete with original military trap door buttplate, trigger guard, and rear sling stud. The stock was expertly re-contoured, checkered, and a pistol grip was added. The wood was refinished in Tuff-Stock Woodland Green by Mac’s Shootin’ Irons, and the stock’s metal components were refinished in TG-1 by Mac’s Shootin’ Irons. The bore is a little dark, but the rifling still looks good. This handy carbine features a Williams adjustable express rear sight and Lyman front sight (no hood). This rifle has been well-maintained and is fully functional. This rifle would be a fine collectible or a fun shooter.

It is up to the buyer to consult with a competent gunsmith prior to firing this rifle. Also, it is up to the buyer to know and conform to all local, state and federal laws regarding purchase, use and ownership of this rifle!
