Trapdoor 30-40 Test Barrel SN "G"

This barrel is one of the many that Springfield produced for testing the 30-40 cartridge and powder for the proposed Krag system. Testing began in 1891 with several numbered barrels with a variety of receivers. During testing it was proposed to use barrel steels from several suppliers. These barrels were marked with a letter to identify the steel producer. The letters are known to go as high as "T". We believe multiple barrels were produced with the same steel and thus had the same letter code. This barrel is coded "G". The bore length is 32 5/8" and the muzzle is 5/8" in diameter. The barrel was drilled and tapped for the miniature Buffington sight, The middle hole was for something else. The threads in that hole are much finer than the threads for the Buffington screws. The rifling has three lands and grooves and it appears pristine new. The bluing is excellent. As can be seen, a previous owner tried to do some modifications to the breech end. Also, the barrel has been torched. Repairing the damage should not be a problem for a gunsmith like Bob Hoyt.
