This is a very nice all original Springfield Armory Model 1868 Trapdoor Rifle manufactured in 1870. Mechanically this rifle works great and is sure to be an excellent shooter. This rifle is all original and includes the original cleaning rod. Chambered in 50/70, these rifles were made for a short time before the US decided to settle on the 45/70. These rifles were only produced for 3 years using a lot of surplus parts from Civil War era rifles. If you collect trapdoor rifles, this is a must have rifle for your collection!
