The cal. is 50-70. I found the pic while searching through the Springfield Armory Archives on line. Very frustrating site. The photo ID is:SPAR 40 and the caption reads: Rifle, Trapdoor, experimental .50-70 Date of Manufacture: 1870 Perhaps somebody knows their way through the system. There has to be more information.
