1889 Springfield

Posted by Tim on Sunday, 4 October 2009, at 5:05 p.m.

I've been looking around online for some info on an old model 1873 Springfield that was given to me a few years ago. From what I can tell from the list of production info I found online it was made in June-Sept of 1889. The mark on the stock matches that as well. One thing I have not be able to find clear info on is the size of a rifle. This gun is only 43" over all with a 24" barrel, from what I can tell that seems a bit short. The guns is S# is 453,559. Anyone have any other info for me?

Thanks, Tim
