Re: Recently aquired 1873 rifle

Without actually seeing the piece I could only guess why the barrel is stamped on a very low serial numbered receiver. (Replaced at some later date, maybe).

Do you have a high or low arch breech block??

Is the side plate stamped with a date (1873)?

What rear sight is on the piece? Buckhorn or Buffington.

Do you have pictures to email to one of us?
