This is your first lesson and an important lesson at that, how to pronounce Krag-Jørgensen. I hear so many interpretations of this rifle name so here goes..
Krag – this is pronounced with a silent ‘g’ so think of it as saying crowd but missing the d off the end, sort of like crowwwww but not like the bird.
Jørgensen or Jorgensen if you want the English spelling, this is pronounced with a Y at the front, so Yorgensen.
Put it together and you get Croww Yorgensen. Easy really! 🙂
We will move on to the Danish 8x58RD (Rimmed Danish) Krag-Jørgensen in a bit.
EDIT – I must point out this applies to the Danish Krag and not the American or Norwegian Krags….. 🙂
