Any rifle design from the Norwegians Ole Krag and Eric Jorgensen. They designed various types of rifle between 1888 and 1935.

A Krag-Jorgensen rifle was the first bolt-action, small calibre rifle adopted by the United States in 1892 to replace the single shot Springfield. Around 500,000 'Krags' were produced at the Springfield Armoury in Massachusetts from 1894-1904. It was the American military's main rifle from 1894 to 1907 and found use in the Spanish-American War and the Philippines.
