US Springfield 1873 ?

Posted by Perry on Tuesday, 21 February 2012, at 6:58 p.m.


Just got this nice US Springfield, US Model 1873, 45-70, trapdoor. Serial# 143754. Two bands, cleaning rod. Stock is stamped "SWP" 1889 with the circle P. Barrel is stamped VP with emblem. Stamped also "P" and a "R". Under the barrel and lower receiver its stamped "81". Is this for real and does anyone have an history on this firearm. I would like to pass it on to our Grandson for the future. Pictures available.
