Serial number first trapdoor info request

Posted by JAllen on Tuesday, 10 May 2022, at 9:35 p.m.

Hello, I have just acquired a my first trapdoor, and was looking to get any info on the rifle that I can. Serial number is 29657. I dont see any cartouche on the stock. It is a 3-click action, 2 to open, 1 more to full cock. Trigger is serrated vertically. The side plate says US SPRINGFIELD but has no date. The breech block has US Model 1873 stamped on it. The barrel towards the breech has the marking V P Eagle P stamped inn a line, with what looks like a sideways H off set of that line. Wondering what I have here, and if anyone could provide any info as to when or who it was issued to.
