Re: History of my trapdoor

No history survives for serial number 73411.
Guns in that general range show a variety of uses by both regular units and also volunteer units in the Spanish American War, but since they were not shipped or issued in exact serial number order, there is no way to tell where yours went.
Most numbers really close are rifles with 32 1/2 inch barrels, but there are a sprinkling of carbines with 22 inch barrels as well.
Hope that helps.
