Re: HR 45-70 OFFICERS TRAPDOOR CARBINE MOD 1873 Instruction manual

Tom, Follow these steps for loading and shooting your Carbine.

Step #1: Run a patch through the bore with bore cleaner. VERY important step.

Step #2: Buy some "Cowboy Action" loads (Buffalo Arms, etc). 65 grains loads preferred.

Step #3: Open the Breech Block, insert cartridge, close block, Point the Carbine down range (always pointing down range), cock the hammer. Sight, and squeeze the trigger.

Step #4: Wait for the smoke to clear.

Step #5: Repeat steps one to 4.

Step #6: Try to wipe the grin off your face!

There you have it.

Ernie B.

I found no reference for the manual online. Some nice person here might copy theirs for you.
