Re: 1873 Springfield Rifle

Ernie - I sent you a photo of the gun's breach area, via my cell phone (since I was having trouble with the email route). This is the area where I went to work on the rust with a small square of scotch brite and some olive oil. Let me know if you think I ruined the gun's value. I tried to follow the instructions of this website from others on how to remove the rust. Maybe I should've just left well enough alone!

Where do I find ammo for my springfield? And, who can I take it to first, to have the barrel and breach examined for safety before firing?

I appreciate your feedback. Ted.
