1884 Trapdoor Springfield GORGEOUS  Guns > Rifles > Antique (Pre-1899) Rifles - Ctg. Misc.
Description: The bluing is fantastic on this one at 97%+. The wood is outstanding as well with only a couple handling marks. The bore is great retaining great shine. The cleaning rod is 100% top to bottom. The trigger guard is 100% The buttplate has the typical surface rust/patina as does the nose cap on the stock. There is some also on the base of the wire on the stacking swivel and nut of that barrel ring. Nothing awful, but that it is. The lockplate is incredible as is the print and logo there. The screws are outstanding. I'm pretty picky, so you can see from the photos how stunning this one really is. Most are wall hangers.... this one is museum quality.

It was manufactured in 3rd Qtr 1887 and the serial number falls between 2 guns donated to the Navy museum and 2 returned to the Springfield Armory for accuracy testing.

The rifling is crisp and sharp. The bore is completely shiny.
