Springfield Armoury (US Military Govt Arsenal) Early First Model 1873 Trapdoor Rifle Single Shot 45-70 Rifles

£ 900
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.
I bought it from Collectors Firearms in Huston,Texas,a registered U.S. firearms dealer a number of years ago as a fully-functioning live -firing weapon and had it shipped Into the UK where it went into Customs at Manchester Airport to be cleared and the customs fee paid on it.
The U.S. transport fees,air freight fees and customs fees plus the huge fall in the Pound against the U.S. Dollar in the last ten years make it impossible to buy a fully-functioning Early Model Springfield 1873 Trapdoor Rifle at anything like the price that I am selling this one for,as you will see if you look at the website of Collectors Firearms on line,to which you would have to add the transport fees,air freight fees and customs fees.
All documentation will be given to the buyer of the rifle.
It has all the marks that you would expect to see on a early First Model 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle and the serial number:12339 is that of an early First Model Springfield Trapdoor Rifle dated to 1874,when the first Springfield Trapdoor Rifles were made in 45-70 calibre
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.
