model 1884 round rod bayonet rifle
Posted by Jim Bongiovanni on Tuesday, 1 December 2009, at 1:43 p.m.
I have a question regarding this model-- I inherited one from my grandfather in 1956 (he was resident of Springfield Ma and I don't think it ever left the area) My question is, when referring to the round rod, mine has a triangular point atop a round rod. Is that standard or is it from a different model? Any insight would be appreciated---For the record, my rifle is serial number 542762 and cartouche reads SWP 1892. I fired black powder catridges from it in 1960's but haven't used it since and the firing pin spring is now broken. The piece is in fairly good condition but I have no intention of selling---thanks for any info
