Springfield Trapdoor Rifle, Serial #149587

Posted by John F. Holland, Jr. on Saturday, 10 October 2009, at 3:02 p.m.

I have a Springfield Trapdoor Rifle with serial number 149587. Is it possible to learn some history wrt this rifle? I'm in contact with a Mr. Knisley in York, PA regarding stabilizing this piece for display in my home. I have looked at alot of pictures posted on the wedsite and think that some "back alley" butcher sawed half the stock off and I'm interested in repairing the rifle to its issued standard. Please advise.
