Lt. Col. William Brophy in his book The Krag Rifle claims that the .22 Gallery Practice Rifles were newly manufactured weapons. If so, this would adjust our serial numbers accordingly. Of the 841 .22's manufacture, 500 were made in 1905 and 341 were made in 1906. If Brophy is correct, the highest possible serial number that could appear on a U.S. Krag-Jorgensen Rifle is 478,694.
