High Arch Btrrec Block

Posted by Jon Mummert on Saturday, 11 October 2014, at 5:48 p.m.

Question: Resently picked up Trap Door rifle serial number 201,XXX ( made some time in 1882 I assume) long distance, unable to personally examine it before buying. On arrival found everything to be period correct except that it has a high arch breach block. I got it for a shooter. Questoin is are different period and model breach blocks interchangeable or not, from a safe shooting standpoint that is?

On a side note, what is the procedure for checking the proper fit of a Trap Door Breach block?

Would appreciate any help this forum can provide and thanks in advance. - JM
