I have heard back about the rifle. From the information supplied.
This rifle looks to me to be a prototype rifle from the Springfield Armory, circa 1864 or very early 1865.
There is a list of reasons why this is the conclusion. So what do I do. While I do collect antique rifles, I don't know if a perototype fits into my type of collecting.
Thanks for the help and suggestions
