Re: U.S. Springfield Model 1884

Congratulations! There is no documented usage information on 494192, but most nearby numbers are for cadet rifles. If your barrel length (from the face of the closed breech block to the muzzle) is 29.5" you have a cadet rifle. If it is 32.5" then you have the standard infantry model.

Of course, most of the folks here would be delighted to have one of each, plus a carbine, and of course a matching set of the same guns in the Model 1873 and 1879 variations.

But, most normal people are quite content to own a single trapdoor... until they decide they want another one.
