Re: 1873 Trapdoor Carbine

To measure the barrel length, close the breech block & insert a rod down the barrel until it contacts the block. Make the rod at the muzzle & remove.

If the barrel dose not measure 22" you do not have a carbine. A fake of some sort, yes, but not a carbine.

SA did not initial the receiver.
