Re: Springfield Trapdoor Serial Number

Hi, My father-in-law has a US Springfield 1884 Mil .45-70 Ser# 42026 with Lyman Littlefield Con stamped on it. He says "thinks" he remembers a story told by his now deceased father about an ancestor in the Childress, Tx region that was in the Texas Rangers. I am wondering if this rifle might have indeed been issued to the Texas Rangers and how 'Lyman Littlefield Con' ties in with the manufacturing of this rifle.
