Around 500,000 "Krags" were produced at the Springfield Armory in Massachusetts from 1894 to 1904. The Krag–Jorgensen rifle in .30 caliber found use in the Boxer Rebellion, the Spanish–American War and the Philippine–American War. Two thousand rifles were taken to France by the United States Army 10th–19th engineers (railway) during World War I; but there is no evidence of use by front-line units during that conflict.
