Yes, I need some help with a SN on a Springfield 1873,45-70, definitely a carbine, that has been passed down for generations in my family. The SN is clearly 379198. I even have a few of the brass cartridges with wooden projectiles. The only thing missing is the cleaning kit that was stored in the stock.The only marking I have found so far on the stock is a carved saber. perhaps there is a mark on the stock on the bottom almost directly under the front of the adjustable sight, but i can't make it out.thanks-will-
