US Model 1878 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle

A nice Springfield Trapdoor Rifle, model 1878, manufactured in 1890, serial number 501284. Dimensions: 51.5 inches long overall, with a 32 inch barrel. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

 

Condition:

Very good overall condition, with strong marks, a crisp action, and a very good bore. The wood has a number of contact marks, and the cartouche is barely discernible. The gun retains a fair amount of original blue, but there are minor sprinkles of rust on the lockplate and breech. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
