This U.S. Model 1868 Springfield Trapdoor rifle is in very good overall shootable condition. Stocked in walnut, the stock has been refinished early in its history. The wood has numerous handling marks from decades of handling and use by previous owners. The barrel, and most of the furniture, has a bright gray patina. Internally the bore is bright, with some minor pitting near the muzzle. Trigger reach is 13-1/2" and the weight is 8.7 pounds, it will be a good shooter for today's modern size BPCR enthusiast.

In very nice condition the wood has numerous small dents and dings, but no breaks or cracks. The stock has been sanded and refinished, and there are no visible cartouche marks. The military style buttplate is wide and lightly curved, made to absorb the recoil of the .50-70 cartridge. The left side of the buttstock is stamped with the number 14. Our top view of the trapdoor shows off the thumbnail comb extension of the buttplate, clearly marked U.S.. The buttplate has faded to a silver-gray patina with age. Moving up the stock, the short tang can be seen, retaining some of its original bluing. The trapdoor is dated 1870 over an eagle's head and crossed arrows over U.S.. The serial number of the rifle, 48xxx, can be seen on the left side of the breech and barrel. Ahead of the breech and trapdoor, the barrel measures 27" out to the muzzle. The proper ladder style rear sight and military style front blade can be found on the rifle. The bore is bright, with only a few minor pits near the muzzle. The exterior finish has aged to a silvery gray.

From below the rounded toe of the rifle can be seen leading forward to the steel triggerguard. The triggerguard has a sling swivel on the forward bow that is matched by a front swivel on the front barrel band. Two blued barrel bands hold the barrel to the stock while also supporting the cleaning rod below. Each of the bands is properly marked with a U, the open end of which faces toward the muzzle. We note the cleaning rod is a modern reproduction and is not original to the rifle.

The lock works crisply, and the trigger release is positive and smooth. The lock plate is marked with an eagle next to U.S. / Springfield in two lines, with 1864 behind the hammer. The Model 1868 was one of the earliest trapdoor rifles, converting as many parts as possible from the thousands of percussion muzzleloaders left over from the American Civil War. The tumbler is the same as on Civil War muskets, with two notches. The sear screw has backed out, as commonly seen on this style of lock. The firing pin is two piece, with return spring.
