You have found THE site for correct, unbiased, unfiltered, info on the 1873-84 Trapdoor Springfield Rifle, Carbine, and Cadette. Dick Hosmer is our "go to" guy on this site. The rest of us are "nebies" (me at 12 years collecting included).

I highly recommend getting Al Frasca's two (2) excellent books on the Trapdoor Springfield. I've worn mine out and still have questions.

Welcome to the world of the Trapdoor. Keep digging and come back here often.

We learn something new every day.
