Item No.: 9056 Price : $995.00
Item : SPRINGFIELD U.S. MODEL 1879 TRAPDOOR CARBINE
Description :
This is an original, U.S. Model 1879 Trapdoor Carbine manufactured by Springfield Armory and chambered for the .45-70 Government cartridge. About 15,000 of these were produced. This carbine has been "customized" to make it look a little like an Officer's version. It has been completely, but nicely, reblued. A reproduction checkered iron pistol grip has been fitted. It is fitted with the Buffington rear sight and the Model 1890 Barrel Band. The front sight is hooded. The carbine is in very fine, refinished condition. It retains nearly 100% of its blued finish. The mechanics are excellent and the bore is in very fine condition. It is lightly frosted, but shiny with strong rifling along its length. The stock has been varnished, but is in fine condition with just a couple of tiny dings from use. No cartouches remain. The iron pistol grip has a distinctly reddish cast. Surprisingly, the original cleaning rod and broken shell extractor remain in the butt trap. While having little collector's value, this is a perfect gun for a shooter. It would make a great, big bore brush gun. Stock no. 24216
