Re: serial number

You have some sort of combination of mixed parts, as no trapdoor carbine was originally made with an 1869 dated breechblock. Is the caliber .50 or .45?

Where is the serial number located? Matching pair on left side? You probably have a cut-down Model 1868 Rifle.

Across back of receiver? You probably have an Model 1868 block wrongly installed in an 1873 receiver.

Pictures would help.
