1868/1870 Rifle

Posted by David Attanasio on Thursday, 5 February 2015, at 6:16 p.m.

I recently came into a trapdoor, by description it appears to be an 1868 with the long breech which is numbered as is the barrel. The trap door is marked 1870 over eagle over arrows. So is would this be a 1868 that has its door replaced with one marked 1870? The rifle is very nice condition, mostly bright with no rust.
