The Krag Model 1898 Rifle was the first smokeless powder repeating firearm adopted by the United States. Because U.S. smokeless powder manufacture was lagging, sufficient quantities of these arms were not available to national forces as war broke out with Spain. When the U.S. Navy battleship MAINE blew up in Spanish Cuba's Havana harbor, it made little difference who was at fault.
