Springfield M1888 .45-70 "trapdoor" rifle with rod bayonet. Serial number 546958. SWP stock cartouche present with date of 1892. Also has "P" firing proof in stock behind triggerguard and neat rack markings in right side of butt 6 over 51. This is a nice untouched gun overall with light rust and substantial original blue on the metal parts. Stock has a nice untouched appearance with light coloration, showing light wear and use with scattered light to moderate handling marks, has some minor nicks in the edges, but free of cracks and only one forearm edge chip worth noting. Rod bayonet functions smoothly. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
