Re: 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Parts Gun?

That's great news Dick. "Restore" was a bad choice of words. I only had two things in mind at that moment, replacing the incorrect flat-headed lock screws and the 1870 receiver. But that moment passed pretty quickly. I think I'll keep it as it is.

My thanks to you and everyone who has responded to my post. I'm continuing to seek information about the best way to preserve the fragile leather sling and, the rest of the rifle for that matter.
