Springfield 1873 Trap Door

Posted by Larry Sparks on Saturday, 8 November 2008, at 8:04 p.m.

I have a Springfield Trap Door Model 1873 that I use regularly for deer season. It shoots well and is in good to very good shape. The serial number is #42xx and there is ONLY those four numbers on the breech. Nothing has faded out. The stock has the stamp RDR on it in capital letters directly behind the trigger guard. Does anyone have any idea of what the history of this one might be or when it was manufactured? Larry
