This U. S. Model 1877 Springfield Trapdoor Carbine has a number or revisions to the 1873 Model including a longer comb to strengthen the stock, and a sectional ramrod stored in the buttstock. This carbine has a repaired crack though the lock panel and wrist. The cartouche on the side panel is only faintly visible. This carbine has numerous handling marks on the stock, barrel, and furniture. The lock, breech block, and barrel's original blue finish have aged to a gray-brown. Internally the bore has some visible pitting and some areas can be felt with a cleaning patch. Official production of trapdoor rifles ended by July of 1893. Production information, and other useful trapdoor info, can be found in #BOOK-45-70-S , by Joe Poyer and Craig Riesch.

The stock has the marks and dings from many years of use and has aged to a dark black color. The cartouche is faintly visible and inspector's proof mark below the triggerguard is still visible. The triggerguard has a good amount of the original blue finish with scattered brown speckles. No markings are visible on the triggerguard. This is an original carbine with the cleaning rod hole drilled in the buttstock and a sliding door, with oblong hole, on the buttplate that opens to reveal the cleaning rod cavity. The cleaning rod is missing from this carbine. The original cartridge case extractor is included.

The comb extension of the buttplate is stamped with U.S. below the screw, which is correct due to adding the spring for the door in the buttplate. This carbine buttplate has the additional stamping of S.C.. The serial number, 380xxx is marked on the breech of the rifle, the serial number is partially marred by marks and magnification will be needed to read it. The color case hardening on the trap door has faded. The door itself bears the markings U.S. over MODEL over 1884, again very faint.

Chambered for the .45-70 Government cartridge. The barrel is marked with the V, view proof, over P, firing proof, proof marks. Just below these marks is an upraised eagle head over P. The muzzle end has some dings. The front sight has the optional hood installed over the original front sight. The Buffington sight has the correct C carbine sight marking. Forward, a single barrel band and its spring is in the correct position. The side panel is fitted with the later strengthened sling bar and sling ring, to attach to a shoulder lanyard to prevent loss.

The lock works crisply with the three position tumbler, the trapdoor action secures correctly, and the trigger release is positive and smooth.The lock plate is marked with a forward facing eagle next to U.S. over SPRINGFIELD. The lock, along with the rest of the steel furniture is turning brown patina, with age. The stock has some old chips along the edges of the lock mortise.

The trapdoor carbines were a small percentage of the total Springfield production. The barrel has a shootable, but not perfect bore. The stock has a repaired wrist, but it does blend into the aged patina. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted.
