I was just given my great grandfathers rifle and would appreciate any information I can find about the rifle. On the lock plate is an eagle and the words US Springfield.On the trap door is US model 1884.The serial number is 416377. On the barrel in front of the breech a VP and what looks like the head of an eagle and the letter J are stamped. On the barrel band in front of the rear sight the letter U is stamped. I see no other markings.Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
