Model 1873 Trapdoor Carbine

Posted by Eric Neff on Sunday, 3 June 2012, at 12:51 p.m.

Hello, I'm new to this board and was hoping someone might be able to help me date this carbine and/or have any information about it. It is a Springfield Model 1873 Trapdoor Carbine, .45-70 caliber. The serial # is 14,125. It is stamped with a 'VP' and an 'R'. It appears to be in fair condition though it probably has not been cleaned in decades and it looks like all the blueing has worn off. It appears the stock has been refinished but there are not markings on it. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks, Eric
