I'm on my fifth Krag. The front barrel bands are getting a little pricey. I get my wood (both forearm extensions and handguards)from: East Taylor LLC, the owner, Jack Schwartz is a member of the Krag Collector's Association.
My son does the woodworking end of it for me, he uses dowels and West System epoxy.
Getting the sheen and the color to match can be a real pisser. This has enabled me to get some Krags with excellent bores and very nice cartouches at a reasonable price or on a "payment plan" where in I buy parts over time.
I'm always trolling gunbroker for barrel bands and they are most always available.
Keep us posted
