The long gun prize is an antique Springfield Model 1873 Trapdoor Rifle, manufactured circa January 1880 and appears to be all original. The model 1873 was the first trapdoor Springfield chambered for the powerful and famous .45-70 GOVT cartridge. The trapdoor rifle was the primary weapon in the U.S. military from the end of the Civil War to the end of the 19th Century, encompassing the Indian Wars and even the Spanish-American War in Cuba. 

 

The overall condition of this rifle is fine. The breech block is case colored. The blue on the barrel has turned dark over the years and has surface freckles on most metal parts. All markings are clear and legible with matching serial number date with 1880 cartouche date. The SWP cartouche is for Samuel W. Porter, the chief armorer at Springfield. The walnut stock shows use but remains solid with no splits or cracks. The bore is bright and shiny with sharp rifling. The action works excellent and is strong and crisp. It also comes with a original socket bayonet but is missing the sheath.  Valued at $1600.00
 

 

Here is a fantastic example of an Indian Wars Trapdoor 1873 by Springfield Armory! This firearm is a true piece of history and is considered an antique (pre-1898) so no background check is needed.
