1873 Springfield Carbine with no Serial Number

Posted by Homer Bland on Monday, 19 September 2016, at 6:56 p.m.

I have a 1873 Carbine 45-70. The barrel O.D. is the same size as my 1864 rifle that is 50-70. This Carbine has a Buck Horn sight. I removed Butt Plate and it has no hole in stock for cleaning rod. I also removed the front Band to check if stock was altered. It is all one piece. It has a 6 groove barrel and a 2 click hammer. The breech has a hump and no saddle ring was ever on stock I can find NO serial number. The Side Plate has 1873 and Breech is 1873. The side plate sits perfect into the stock. Can you help me with this Carbine?
