The 1873 dated low arch breechblock bears an even balance of light brown and pewter gray and the lockplate is a darker bluish-brown and is a bit shy of the wood. The walnut stock rates good overall with strong SWP 1891 cartouche, firing proof and small rack numbers on heel and right side of stock with handling marks and remnants of an added red paint on belly of buttstock. Rifle wears a proper front sight, Buffington rear sight and ramrod bayonet. A very good condition 1888 Trapdoor rifle.
