Springfield Model 1873 trapdoor rifle

Posted by Bill Macke on Sunday, 8 February 2015, at 12:20 p.m.

I have what I believe to be subject rifle, serial no. 105302, US Model 1873, MASS 'P' on front of the breach, US on top of butt plate, and 'GA' stamped into top rear of stock. The rifle is in only fair condition, with, apparently, electricians tape wrapped around the forward stock at the retaining wring, and around the stock behind the trigger guard.

Any help you can give me in identification and approximate date of manufacture will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
