Item No.: 9136 Price : $1,195.00
Item : U.S. MODEL 1870 TRAPDOOR SPRINGFIELD RIFLE, .50-70
Description :
Here is an original, U.S. Model 1870 Trapdoor Springfield Rifle chambered for the .50-70 Government cartridge. Built with existing Civil war locks, these were manufactured from 1870-1873. Total production was 11,533 rifles. This rifle is in fine condition, finished Armory Bright with a black, oil quenched receiver and breech block. It retains most of this bright finish, with a fine speckling of brown in small areas. The receiver and breech block retain all of their black finish. The lock and hammer were probably case colored originally, but now have been finished bright. The rifle has an excellent, bright shiny bore and the mechanics work perfectly. The stock is in fine condition with the usual small dings and scratches associated with use. There is a chip behind the lower barrel band on the right side of the gun that has worn smooth from years of handling. This is a fine example of the early Model 1870 Trapdoor Rifle. With its great bore it should be a real shooter. Stock no. 24441
