(.30-40 Krag) was replaced as the U.S.
Army rifle after the Spanish-American
War, when, in the heat of battle, it became
obvious that the Spaniards' stripper clipfed 7X57 Mausers were superior because
they could be reloaded more rapidly. The
Krag was not lost on the hunting public,
though, and when surplus Krags were
made available by the Director of Civilian
Marksmanship to NRA members for as
little as $1.50, they were snapped up. This
was important in the '20s and '30s, a time
of economic poverty.
I shot a nicely sporterized Krag back
in the '60s, but never had the opportunity
to kill a deer with it. Lots of hunters did,
though, enjoying the super-slick, singlelug action and the ability to load five
rounds by thumbing open the magazine
box's flanged cover and tossing in cartridges.
Replacing the Krag was the Springfield
1903, which basically was a copy of the
Mauser 98. A lawsuit followed and a
royalty deal was worked out, but was
suspended at the outbreak of World War
I. The M1917 Enfield also emerged at
that time to bolster the U.S. arsenal, with
the lion's share of those produced at the
Eddystone Arsenal in Pennsylvania.
By the close of WWI, confidence in
the bolt-action and .30-06 cartridge was
strong, and many hunters saw the combination as an improvement over the levergun. Firearms manufacturers responded
by developing bolt-action hunting rifles
employing the Mauser action, recognizing
the design's genius and knowing it would
be a while before something superior surfaced. It can be argued that none ever has.
In 1920, Savage brought out its Model
20, a cousin of the Springfield '03. A
beautiful rifle with a so-so trigger, the
Model 20 was a harbinger of things to
come as gun manufacturers focused on
24

developing new bolt-rifle models for
hunting, and not cobbled together from
military parts, which was what Remington's first bolt-gun, the Model 30, offered
back in 1926.
Winchester actually directed its efforts
into a "clean sheet" bolt-action rifle before
WWI, but the effort was delayed until
after the war. Using an improved Mauser
98 action, it came into production in
1925 as the Model 54. The predecessor
of the famed Model 70, the M54 was
the first rifle chambered for the new .270
Winchester.
Even though the bolt-action rifle
was the focus of firearms development,
Winchester lent a bit more muscle to its
levergun heritage by offering the M94 in
only the carbine version, then expanding
on the line with two updated variants, the
Model 55 with a 24-inch barrel and curved
pistol grip and the Model 64, which many
purists consider to be the most elegant
levergun ever made, especially with factory upgrades.
In 1936, Winchester dipped deeper into
the past and brought out a slightly modified version of its Model 1886 levergun,
dubbing it the Model 71. This big-boomer
was offered in only one chambering,
the potent .348 Winchester. Made of
renowned Winchester Proof Steel, it was
a marvel of American craftsmanship. The
M71 conjured a sense of great power, fitting for any Northwoods adventure. Even
though total production never reached the
48,000 mark, many found their way into
Pennsylvania deer and bear camps. The
M71 was revived as a replica firearm in
limited numbers by Browning in the late
1980s and again by Winchester in 2011.
At that time, Remington's Model 14
and 14½ also morphed into the legendary takedown Model 141 Gamemaster.
It featured longer barrels in both rifle
