Searching for My Dad's Model 1873

Posted by Vernon Peers on Saturday, 31 January 2015, at 12:04 p.m.

I am trying to track down a Model 1873 trapdoor 45-70 that was in my father's collection and hung in our house for many, many years. After his passing in 2011, the rifle was disposed of in his estate before I had a chance to try and obtain it. I tracked it to Cabela's in Louisville Ky, but they won't share with me who bought it from there.

Serial number 370479, original sling and bayonet. I can identify easily by several distinct markings. Any information about its whereabouts would be appreciated.
