1890 Springfield US Model 1888 Trapdoor Rifle 45-70

Serial #508888, .45-70, 32 1/2" barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some traces of freckling within the grooves at the muzzle.  This ramrod bayonet-equipped rifle has an overall plum-brown patina on the exterior metal, including the 1884-dated breech block and Buffington rear sight.  Some traces of the original color case-hardening can still be seen on the underside of the breechblock, however.  The walnut stock is in good-very good condition with numerous small handling marks in the military oil finish, and a still legible "SWP/1890" cartouche on the left side of the wrist.  Moderate to heavy pitting is present on the buttplate, and the stock compartment is empty.  This is a very nice Trapdoor that rates about good condition overall.  Antique
