Springfield Trapdoor Carbine

Posted by William Copley on Tuesday, 7 March 2017, at 1:01 p.m.

I recently purchased an 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Carbine and would like to have some history of the firearm. Is there information available regarding whom the Carbine was issued to initially? The serial number of the Carbine is 182063*. The cartouche on the stock reads SWP 1881. Any information will be appreciated.
