US Model 1878 Springfield?

Posted by chris on Saturday, 26 March 2011, at 3:59 p.m.

I have had this rifle for over 30 yrs.I got it when my grandfather died. It is probably 70% or better. 315665 is the number on the trapdoor.It is missing the rod. It has stamping marks of a: v,p,eagles head,and another v on it. There are other distinct stampings on the stock,one on the left side above the trigger that are initials,and the date 1885 below,in a frame. Not sure what they are or their meaning. Any info I could get would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
