Long Wrist Custer era 1873 Carbine listed

Posted by Michael H. Collins on Thursday, 26 January 2012, at 12:56 a.m.

Joe Salter has an interesting 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Carbine Serial Number 13814 listed for sale. His story is that this Carbine came off a ranch in Canada next to where Sitting Bull and his followers had fled to avoid the US Gov't after the Little Bighorn. The Pictures are interesting but only show the hammer side.Busted stock but repaired. Later model Hammer. Seems a little high priced for the condition. Does anyone know this gun? Thank you. Sincerely, Michael H. Collins
