Inventory # 59324-3
Manufacturer: Springfield
Model: 1873 Trap Door
Caliber: 45-70 Government
New / Used: Used

This 1873 is one of the best trap door rifles to come through our shop in awhile. The stock appears to be original finish of uniform color. The cartouche under the stock is faint but still visible. The Buffington rear sight swivels and adjusts freely. The barrel and action have a nice smooth blue/brown patina finish with spots that are characteristic to such a rifle. The bore is fairly bright with strong rifling and some scattered spots of pitting. The trap door closes snugly. According to the serial number, the rifle was built in 1885.
