Trapdoor Carbines

Posted by Hans Maag on Monday, 9 July 2012, at 7:35 a.m.

I am a Swiss collector of historic US Firearms. Recently, in Switzerland were offered two Trapdoor 1873 carbines, (cut down rifle barrels?), the diameter of the muzzle of the barrel was not .730” (“The Springfield” by Joe Poyer & Craig Riesch) but larger, corresponding to the barrel diameter of my Trapdoor rifle, at 22”. Caveat emptor or original? Hans Maag, Switzerland
