Re: trapdoor springfield need info.

The 1878 stamping, if you look real close, is actually 1873, as no trapdoors were stamped 1878. Being there is no rifling brings to mind "shotgun". Springfield made forager rifles, ie: shotguns. I always thought them to be 'rifle' lenght guns. Also, a complete serial number is most helpful when trying to locate info.
