The following info on the Krag-Jorgensen rifle is courtesy of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krag_rifle:
is a repeating bolt action rifle designed by the Norwegians Ole Herman Johannes
Krag and Erik Jørgensen
in the late 19th century. It was adopted as a standard arm by
A distinctive feature of the Krag-Jørgensen action was its magazine. While many other rifles of its era used an integral box magazine, the magazine of the Krag-Jørgensen was integral with the receiver (the part of the rifle that houses the operating parts), featuring an opening on the right hand side with a hinged cover. The cartridges were inserted through the side opening, and were pushed up, around, and into the action by a spring follower.

was easy to "top off", and unlike most top-loading magazines, the Krag-Jørgensen's magazine could be topped up without
opening the rifle's bolt. The relative complexity of manufacturing this
magazine has been suggested as a reason why many countries did not adopt the Krag-Jørgensen. For others, the magazine's features likely
aided adoption. The next major
Today, the Krag-Jørgensen is a popular rifle among collectors, and is valued by shooters for its smooth action.
