I recently bought a Springfield from an old man who found it in his basement of his old mansion.It was intact but missing the rear sight. Stamped US Model 1878,serial #360953. The other strange thing besides the late ser.# is the dimensions. It's 46 in. overall ,with a 27" barrel, & ramrod 29.5 " long. Barrel doe's not appear to have been cut. I would say that this gun was in his basement for many years.
