1873 Springfield Trapdoor Carbine with the 5 point star marking on the stock

Posted by Michael H. Collins on Sunday, 2 November 2014, at 3:22 p.m.

This message is primarily meant for Dick because he keeps records on these guns. But it's also to inform any others who are interested. I recently purchased 1873 Trapdoor Carbine Serial Number 34,134 from Collectors Firearms in Houston Texas. This Carbine has the distinctive 5 point Star Marking on the stock and has been known for decades. I did not pay the list price. My persistence paid off and I received a considerable reduction. Right or wrong it was still a little north of 10K. Sincerely, Michael H. Collins
