unusual Springfield M1868 50-70 trapdoor rifle. Shows the measurements for a M1868 as noted in Flaydermans Guide, but is not serial numbered, as M1868s usually are. Metal parts have an attractive medium patina overall with good markings. Part of rear sight ladder is absent. Stock is good, showing even wear and use overall, has typical minor handling marks, a chip in the lower lock mortise, and a large dent about the size of a dime in the wrist. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
