Re: 1883 Springfield Rifle

Such made-up guns (not sure I'd call them ceremonial) are sort of the red-headed stepchild of TD collecting.

Interest and demand, since they lack the fine finish and workmanship of an SA product, are generally pretty low, as is value. I only acquired one as an example of the type, and it really found me - I wasn't looking.

I would not pay over $300 - $400 for one on today's market, and it would have to be nice, with most of the classic "oddball" features.

Again, sorry for the less than glowing response.
