Re: 1873 Trapdoor

July-Sept. 1889 is the production date of receiver. It's a good probability that it was indeed finished in that date range. Last serial number for June was 450281.

It should have the buffington sight.

The breech block "should" be marked 1884 but there's not accounting for dates on blocks from SA. The model 84's came on line in '84.

Is there a Cartouche on the stock?
