Re: Information on my Trapdoor 45-70

It was made in 1875, but I did not find any data logged for that number - as stated, only about 5% of the records have survived, and almost none of them give an individual's name.

As to "close" numbers, all research to date indicates that there is absolutely NO historic correlation whatsoever, to even consecutive numbers.

That said, the arm PROBABLY saw militia service during the Span-Am war.
