Re: 1873 Springfield receiver

The short answer is NO.

Do not attempt to weld the receiver. This will not have a good outcome.

Receivers are available from Al on this site, or from Red Daugherty, or I have them for sale.

Any competent Gun Smith can change out the receiver. I also will do the work if you want it done. Just email me for instructions on shipping & cost.
