Those were the days!
From The American Rifleman, April 1928:
"'U.S. Rifle, cal. 30, model 1898 (Krag) ......$1.50.' So reads the all too brief description of one of the finest, truest, and most companionable rifles ever produced, in the rifleman's treasure-house, the D.C.M. price list.....
For an arm intended largely for competitive target work, the usual choice will probably be a National Match Springfield or a D.C.M. Sporter, costing $40.00 and $46.00, respectively."
