1873 springfield carbine

Posted by graves, robert on Thursday, 17 December 2009, at 9:41 a.m.

hello, I have an 1873 springfield carbine with very low serial # 174 .The barrel length is 22", and the carbine is in 45/70. The weapon has all of it's parts including saddle ring. I have removed the butt plate, and there is no cleaning rod hole. I believe stock and rest of carbine to be original.On the stock, just by the metal butt plate, on the top {comb side}in the wood is the cartouche CO.F.6TH . Also stamped in the metal butt is co.f.6th.... In the wood on the bottem of the stock, by the 2 piece trigger guard is also the letter F stamped in the wood. The carbine is in very good working condition. There is of course some dings and bings in the wood stock consistent with use and age. Do you have any info. on this carbine. Do the markings indicate Co.F.6TH, of General Crooks command in the indian war, etc. Any info would be appreciated.Thank you.
