U.S. Model 1879 Trapdoor Rifle

  • Price: $1,195.00
  • Maker: Spfld
  • Model: Trapdoor
  • Caliber: .45-70

  • Description: Serial #262446, .45-70, 32 1/2 barrel with an excellent, bright bore. The barrel and bands have about 70-75% of the original blue remaining under light surface freckling and spots of plum-brown, as well as some mild silvering at the muzzle. The lock and receiver have a mixed gray-brown patina with breech block and barrel tang retain a commensurate amount of the original color case-hardening, thinly freckled throughout. The stock has some small handling marks and minor blemishes along the fine, reapplied military oil finish, and the SWP/1884 cartouche is still quite crisp and clear on the left side of the wrist. Additionally, there is a small, stable chip along the left side of the wrist tang. The original ramrod is still present, and the rifle rates about fine condition overall. Antique
