Re: 1873 Springfiel trapdoor Carbine Serial Number 786

786 "should" be a carbine number, but that's an awfully high price for something that has had so many parts changed, especially the rifle sight - which is a very bad sign, as the army NEVER would have done such a thing, and it definitely brings bubba (or his cousin the fakir) into the picture.
I'd be glad to try and answer any questions, or review any photos (I had zero luck with Facebook) while you have the gun on inspection.
