Model 1870 first production run

Posted by Chris Seward on Thursday, 11 October 2018, at 12:29 p.m.

Hello All. I recently purchased a trapdoor at a local antique shop. I done my research on this piece. What I have is a model 1870 Springfield from the first run. From what I understand they produced 1,000 in 70 and 71 before they made some changed. The rifle that I have is serial number 510 (barrel is marked but not the receiver as expected). Can anyone give me a value on this?

Any questions please let me know.

Thanks for everyone's input.
