Default WTT my Krag Sporter for your 39-2 or 65 3" or ?? in SC

I have a fairly decent Krag sporter. A Marine armorer friend of mine cleaned it up for me. It has had the wood refinished, it's been gauged/checked etc and the metal has been duracoated. There's an ancient rear peep sight on it that has probably been on the rifle since before my Grandfather was born. It is a pre1899 gun so I can ship it most anywhere, but if I'm to trade it for a modern (post 1899 gun) I'd prefer to keep it in SC. (I know, my location says VA, but I'm a SC resident, live on Parris Island actually.)

What I really want is a 39-2, preferably with Pachs on it (I know, odd) and some spare mags and a holster for it. I figure the Krag sporter, it being a nice one and pre 1899 is probably worth about 450ish trade value.

Alternately, I'd like a 3" HB, RB Model 65.

Alternate alternately I'd like... I don't know what. A large number of Armies in Plastic toy soldiers, some 12" GI Joes, a Colt 1903 .32 auto perhaps, a Model 15 to shoot, or who knows what.

I don't have the right USB cable to load photos onto the new laptop from my camera. I'm happy to txt pictures of the Krag though.

Parris Island is in the low country, it is the Beaufort/Port Royal area. I can drive as far as Hilton Head (there's a Barnes and Noble there) for the right deal.

PS, I like the odd and forlorn - Carcanos, RG revolvers, no name derringers, combinations of things, 25 pocket autos, etc.
