This is a nice original Springfield Armory Model 1873 Trapdoor Rifle. This rifle has a good bore with strong rifling and is dark in the grooves. The exterior metal finish of this rifle is mightly pitted. The trapdoor markings are easily legible. However, the lock markings are not legible. Everything on this rifle appears correct and complete. It also comes with the original bayonet that was found with it. Everything functions as it should on this rifle.
