Re: 1873 Springfiel trapdoor Carbine Serial Number 786

Hi Mike, I really have to agree with Dick on this one. I am a little concerned about this carbine, expecially at $4,000. If was 1/2 of that perhaps not so much, but the correct carbine site is not going to be cheap, and you'll have to match the patina very carefully, and that is assuming the stock is good.
What did you think about the other 1873 1st Model I posted about that will be at auction in another 2 weeks? That one seems to be more appealing, at least IMHO.
Whatever help I can be, just ask as well! We're all in this together to help.
