No, not really, but it is all relative. Other hard-to-find items would be the 1868 Carbine (read MAA article), the 1867 Cadet (424 made but few survive) the 1870 Trials Carbine (300) the 1870 Trials Rifle (1000 made but not easily recognized) the 1866 Short Rifle (1100 made but hard to separate from the Bannerman chaff). Turning to non-TD SA arms: the 1870 Sharps Trials Carbine (300 made, 0 known) the 1870 Remington Trials Carbine (300 made, handful known) the 1870 Trials Ward-Burton Carbine (300).
The common 50-70s are the 1866 Rifle, and the 1868 Rifles when dated 1869 or 1870. The 1869 Cadet is the most easily found limited (3400) production piece. A NICE 1870 Rifle is not easy - low production and they all seem to have been chewed up.
There's a start.
