Springfield M1888 45-70 "trapdoor" rifle with ramrod bayonet. Serial number 524164. Stock cartouche dated 1891 and faint "P" firing proof behind triggerguard. Metal parts have a medium patina overall with some light pitting on the barrel and moderate pitting on the buttplate. Stock shows even light wear and use overall with a clear cartouche, has a sliver absent in the left forearm edge just in front of the lower band, has minor handling marks overall with some little nicks on a few edges, particularly around the buttplate, and a tiny crack at rear of lock. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
