Re: 1873 Springfield - Little Big Horn?

Your rifle was made in 1879 - three years after LBH, so, no luck there - sorry.

When the words "for its' age" are appended to a description, I'm always concerned that the person is perhaps not sure of what to expect - many pieces from that era are still in excellent shape, needing no such qualifier.

I'd be glad to review pics of your rifle, if you send them to richardahosmerATcomcastDOTnet. This site cannot accept photos. Or, you can post your question, and pictures for comment at
