Great to see this photo brought up again!
While it is a Krag-Jorgenson (with 1901 rear sight) I believe the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition was the first major public demonstration of the M1903 'Rod Bayonet' Springfield rifles, which had accompanied about 50 cadets from West Point (at the time, one of few to be equipped with the new rifle).
