model 1873

Posted by mike on Tuesday, 27 September 2011, at 6:42 p.m.

I just purchased a model 1873 and was wondering if one of the pro's could answer a few questions? 1. I believe it is 45-70 cal, did they make any other caliber weapons on the 73? 2. the serial number is 224755, is there still records of the date of mfg and to whom or where it was issued. 3. There is a faint cartouche on the bottom of stock at the lower tang I cannot make this out, any help? If you can direct me to some reading that would be appreciated. Thanks
