Springfield M1879 .45-70 "trapdoor" rifle. Serial number 129829. Metal parts are mostly a medium patina with some scattered dings and pitting. Lock bolts and barrel tang screw are reproductions. Upper barrel band is an incorrect replacement from a cadet model. Stock is fair, showing an older added finish over moderate wear and handling marks, has a piece missing to left of barrel tang and a few minor age cracks. Cleaning rod is absent. Lock functions out of the gun but will not cock when installed because the sear is pressed on by the stock. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
