Re: Springfield Trapdoor Serial Number

Then it is a Model 1868 Rifle - of which about 52,300 were made, over three years. Most are dated 1870, and a VERY few are dated 1868.

So far as a false claim is concerned, I was once told by an attorney that the claimant HAD to have filed a police report BEFORE the serial number showed up - and that any claim made after such a posting would be laughed out of court.

This is a case where the exact number was not required - sometimes it is. Thanks for getting back to us.
