Re: 1873 quesiton

Posted by Don on Saturday, 1 November 2008, at 3:25 p.m.

I just inherited a 45-70 from my dad. The barrel markings are U.S.model 1873 Cal. 45-70 GOVT. It appears the serial number is SA 2008. On the stock is a marking that looks something like a P. It is in mint condition. I am trying to find out if it is original or a replica? I am 55 yrs old and my dad has had this gone before I was born. There is also a marking on the breach that says Calvary Model. Please help? There is also an eagle emblem on the plate that says U.S. Springfield. Thanks for your response.
