In DC at NARA to research SN40825 - what records would we look for?

Posted by Jamie O on Saturday, 6 October 2012, at 10:08 a.m.

Hi all,

Made the trip out here to DC to go to the National Archives, looking for information on a Trapdoor, Allen Conversion, 50/70 caliber, SN# 40825. Specifically looking to find what armory made it, any specifics about its manufacturer (was it a cadet rifle?) and military history.

Has anyone had any success at the archives finding this type of information on a Trapdoor, and if so - do you know or remember what records the information was in?

Thanks in advance for any help!
