Re: Springfield Trapdoor Serial Number

Terry- There is no historical information on where that rifle might have been used. Surviving records indicate a lot of rifles with nearby numbers were in use by various volunteer units during the Spanish American War, and yours may have seen similar use, or remained safely crated up in storage somewhere.
