So my step father has this rifle he received long ago from his grandfather. It looks like the stock was sported out, but the barrel has an old English K with a crown above it stamped at the base. The side pops open to load like 4 or 5 rounds and its a locking bolt action. The rounds he puts in it are 6.5 x 55. Without taking it apart to see, there's no other identifying information on it. Thanks.

Hop on Google and enter NORWEGIAN KRAG-JORGENSEN. That'll being up a Wikipedia article on the rifle, its various subtypes by year, as well as the variants used by the US and Denmark.

Looks like an H, to me. If so, gun was made by Husqvarna, in Sweden.

Wipe some flour on it, then wipe it off with your finger. The markings will be full of flour and show up white, and much easier to see.

It is likely a m1912 carbine that has been sporterized-
The 1924 indicates year of manufacture.
A m1912 of that year would have serail number about 28,000
The model 1894 rifles ceased production in 1923 --
It could be an original m1894 civilian model, they were produced to about 1940.
What is the serial # ? m94 ceased with about #15000 -
civilian have a different number series to about # 40,000 -
Can you show a photo of the bolt handle?

PS
Closer look at photo shows serial # 27408 --- M1912 --
The bolt handle should have aknurled flat knob --

A very good weapon, lucky step-dad
