Fine Mod 1884 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle w/Bayonet
Offered here for sale is a very presentable "untouched"
and original Springfield "classic" Trapdoor rifle with its original bayonet
The Springfield trapdoor
held a mighty place as our country's primary longarm from its inception at the end of the Civil War with Allin conversions of rifled muskets through almost 3 decades in the military. This further development of the Model 1873 in .45-70 caliber is the Model 1884. The 1884 maintained the size of the 1873, had a removable ramrod cleaning rod, and maintained a musket type rear sight.
This specimen, serial number 491860 is all original and due to its chrome lined bore is EXCELLENT.
itself does not show a great deal of wear and its outward appearance of a well aged
is more due to storage in open area than to a great deal of service use. The lockplate has clear eagle and Springfield markings with U.S. and the breechblock has MODEL/1884 and serial number.
There is a great deal of original case colors on block and tang with a covering of a
grainy deposit/oxidation/aging which we have left "as is". The exterior of the barrel is a smooth plum brown patina with inspection marks evident at breech area (which is also a bit grainy).
The buttplate has similar oxidation. There is still cartouches in stock opposite lock as well as behind the trigger guard although faint. The wood is sound without cracks with a few bruises
from use or storage dings. The bayonet's sheath shows some wear however the bayonet itself
is excellent with all of its finish.
For the collector who wishes a fit between the 1873 model and the 1888 this would be a nice addition or for the shooting enthusiast or reenactor a sound, excellent mechanically,
tight Springfield Trapdoor.
