Experimental rifle

Posted by clif derm on Thursday, 22 March 2012, at 6:27 p.m.

I recently came across a photo of two M1870 experimental Springfield rifles that manufactured as boxlocks. I would love to share this picture with everyone who is interested and perhaps learn the story behind these strange rifles. I have been collecting Springfield firearms since 1963 and have never seen anything like these rifles, nor have any of my collector friends.

I'll gladly e-mail them.

Sincerely Cliff Derm Fort Worth, Texas
