Re: Very early 1868 Rifle, was '1863 Trapdoor'

Kevin, the cleaning rod was used to clean the bore after firing or whenever the soldier needed to. By "missfire" do you mean when a cartridge didn't go off? Then in that case, the breech block was simply opened and the unfired cartridge was ejected. Interested is selling it? Fred
