The B.D. & Co. Bolt Action is a strong and versatile rifle, built to perform in any environment. The bolt-action mechanism allows for quick firing and reloading, making this rifle an ideal choice for long-range combat with multiple targets. This gun has an ammo capacity of five rounds, and can use Regular, High Velocity, Split Point, Express and Explosive rifle ammo.
Unlike in real life, the Bolt Action Rifle is not used by US Army Soldiers in-game despite the Krag being the standard service rifle of the US Army from 1892 to 1903.
Unlike the Red Dead Redemption version, which is incorrectly shown being reloaded with charger clips, this version is more accurately reloaded one round at a time through the side-mounted loading gate, the Krag being generally incompatible with charger clips, except a few rare experimental guns (The Norwegian Krags were able to use indigenous enblock clips).
With a scope attached, this rifle becomes a good substitute for the Carcano Rifle.
A custom version of this weapon is frequently used by Bill Williamson, with it appearing in a different color varnish and browned steel.
