Not sure if this applies to what has been posted about this gun but the wiki rules say... "Weapon Pages - This wiki covers the Red Dead series.

- It's OK to point out the places where the game has altered historical fact, but not go beyond that. Now that I look at it though, I think the game rifle may indeed be an '03, not a Krag. Solicitr 21:05, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
The gun is acctually a Springfiled '03
The gun is very powerful. I don't think it's a springfield. Why would it be called a bolt action if it was a springfield? Blue agold94 21:10, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Don't confuse your guns- "Springfield" simply refers to the factory, Springfield Arsenal, which has made many, many firearms. The "Springfield Rifle" in the game is the Model 1873 "Trapdoor." This is not even remotely related, save where it was made, to the Springfield M1903 bolt-action rifle, which was the US standard rifle in World War I and still in use during World War II.

Exactly. The rifle IS the Krag-Jorgensen, chambered in the famous .30-40 Krag (which became a hit in the US), but it was produced by Springfield. It's not uncommon for one model of weapon to be produced by multiple armories-- the Colt M1911 was produced by Colt and the Rock Island armory during WWII; I think it may have been produced by Springfield as well.
On top of that, the Springfield M1903 isn't the Krag at all; it's a totally different gun, and if you look at it, it is definitely not the Bolt Action Rifle featured in the game. EmceeGrath 18:41, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
Contrary to what this article says, the Mondragon rifle was not the official rifle of the Mexican Army. Most government soldiers in the Mexican Revolution had the Mauser Gewehr 98. Which looks similar to the Bolt-Action but operates completely different.
