1869 Springfield Cadet

Posted by Wayne James on Monday, 9 February 2009, at 6:56 p.m.

I just bought an 1869 Springfield Trapdoor Cadet rifle online through Rock Island Auction. The barrel length is 28 1/5", serial number 7728. I do not have possession of the rifle yet but RIA stated the caliber is 45-70. Your website and others state that the 1869 Cadet comes only in a 50 cal. Is RIA correct on the caliber or should I wait until I receive the rifle to determine what the caliber is. The rifle is in NRA Very Good condition, non professional refinish.
