Springfield M1866 .50-70 "Second Allin" rifle, arsenal conversion to 2-band cadet rifle. Dated 1864 on lock. Correct style with original middle band removed, sling stud relocated to upper band. Metal parts have a medium gray appearance from having been cleaned. Stock is fair, missing a piece of wood in front of lock, broken and glued in the lock area, and cracked by the lower band spring. Has some dry age damage by the buttplate. Mechanically good except breech block lockup is a little loose. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
