Tracing Springfield 1873 rifle

Posted by Ray Speckman on Wednesday, 28 September 2011, at 4:54 p.m.

I have a Springfield 1873 trapdoor, serial number 45573.

I would like to find out to what military unit and even person to whom it was issued.

It came from Montana and it could have been utilized in the Battle of Little Big Horn (Custer's Last Stand).

In other words, I would like to find the history of this gun.
