Springfield M1866 .50-70 "trapdoor" rifle. Dated 1864 on lock. Metal parts are a mottled silver to medium brown patina with some scattered pitting. Stock shows average wear and use overall with worn cartouches opposite the lock. The wood has fairly well defined lines and may not have ever been cleaned, but does show added finish with numerous minor handling marks overall and a couple minor hairline cracks in front of the lock. Mechanically fair, action shows wear but still functions, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
