1884 Trapdoor Info
Posted by R. Fortner on Sunday, 29 December 2013, at 10:23 p.m.
I have an 1884 Trapdoor rifle passed down to me. I cannot find anything on the serial number, but that is not what interests me the most. The serial is 541343, by the way. What I am interested in is the markings, but from what I am told can be very hard to decipher. At any rate the stock is marked with a large "65" and under than in smaller numbers is "480". in the opposite side it appears to say "SWP 1892" in a box. I say appears because it is written in what would appear to be a fancy script. Any info would be appreciated.
