Re: Springfield Trapdoor Serial Number

Posted by Ray Larson on Monday, 11 May 2009, at 10:15 p.m.

I still need help in determining exactly when my trapdoor carbine was made, and where. It is a Model 1873, and the numbers are all readable, except the last one...34124?. I found the gun buried in the ground complete on my fathers' farm in 1952. The dirt around it had preserved the gun, except a bit of the stock was bad, and I used plastic wood on it. It looks great, and I have pictures if you want to see them. His farm was in Oaks, No. Dak., and I might sell it. Call me at 760-929-1254, if you wish.

Thanks, Ray
