Re: 1884 Trapdoor stock markings.

Posted by John Newton on Friday, 13 February 2015, at 10:02 p.m.

I have an 1884 Trapdoor rifle S/N 515891 made in 1891. The left side of the stock is clearly marked "K" "2" "47" (one character under the other, 47 being about 1" forward of the butt plate). I assume these indicate the military unit to which the rifle was issued. Does anyone know what and where it was? (Please EMAIL me your response. I might not find it this site) Thanks. John
