M73 Rifle, SN178447

This rifle was produced in 1881. The cartouche is not readable, but the firing proof is visible. The Buckhorn sight is mounted with the Armory's slotless screws indicating the gun has not been altered or updated.The condition of the metal and wood indicate the rifle was well used. The rifle is IDed to Co.C, 32nd Michigan Vounteers, and was issued in 1898. The underside of the block has strong color case and the top has faded to a gray color. The bore is very shootable, but will not win any matches. The rifling is deep and sharp. The lower butt plate screw evidently has caused a crack in the stock
