This is an original Early First Model 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle.There are no splits in the wood and the barrel is in excellent,fully fireable condition.
You could not buy an original 1873 Early First Model Springfield Trapdoor Rifle in this condition for anything like the price that I am selling this one for and I am selling it because I have never fired it and having moved to a small bungalow,I do not have anywhere to display it so it's time to sell it.
It has all the marks that you would expect to see on a early First Model 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle.
The buyer must collect this item as you can no longer legally post live-firing firearms through the post and I have glaucoma so I am not allowed to drive but I will pay you £50 for your fuel cost.
Payment is by cleared cheque,paypal, cleared bank transfer or cash only.
