Re: trapdoor serial no 563307

You either have a "Model 1888" (but which are all still marked 1884) rod-bayonet rifle, if the barrel is 32-5/8", OR a Model 1884 Cadet rifle, if the barrel is 29-5/8". ANY other barrel length would indicate the handiwork of "Bubba". Of course, the wooden rod, and red & white stripes are completely "wrong" in any event. What you have may be easily fixable, or it may not. Would need to see pictures.
