Re: Help estimating value of 1893 Springfield

What you have is most likely a Model 1888 (even though block is date 1884) rifle with combination rod-bayonet. The 1893 date would have to be on the left wrist of the stock. Look for "Model 1888" here (in the classifieds) and at www.gunboker.com. Pay attention to comparative condition and completeness, as well as whether or not the gun is getting bids at the price asked.
