Description: Offered is a Springfield Model 1873 that was manufactured between 1873 and 1884. So it is around 150 years old give or take a few years. It appears to function as designed but like most things this old I would approach shooting it on the cautious side. (I have attached many pictures so please look at the pictures) Here is what I think I know about it.

It is a Single-Shot Breech-Block action. Produced 1. Cavalry carbine with 22" round barrel. Lock plate marked with Eagle, and "U.S. Springfield". Hinged "Trapdoor" stamped "U.S. model 1873". The serial number has been buffed off the breech block. The barrel band is stamped "U", and has been modified to accommodate the sight, which is an M1901 30-40 Krag sight. It has a rifle trigger guard with provision for a sling swivel. The stock has a small crack on both sides of the stock at the trigger housing area. Carbine stock was inletted for a saddle ring bar, but the bar has been removed. US marked buttplate with hinge. The bore appears rough with thin rifling. The barrel has thinning dull old re-blue, with handling loss at the bottom. The breech block is mostly blue. Hammer. the lock plate and trigger guard have been buffed. There are no cartouches, or "P" proof on the stock, as it has been sanded. NRA Condition-Fair to Good as Antique Firearm.
