Springfield model 1873/77/84 ? carbine. Barrel length 22". This is not a cut down rifle. 90% of existing finish is a smooth dark brown patina. Serial number is 138500 which indicates a manufacture date of 1880. The lock plate pictures the American Eagle the US Springfield and the date 1873. The stock is solid with no cracks. The stock is also very unique showing wear to the original finish on the fore grip and two large spots on the bottom right side of the stock near the butt which indicates that it was likely carried in a boot or scabbard on horse back and rubbed against the horse or the riders leg or both. The front sight is covered by the original sight protector. The rear sight is the long range leaf style with winddage adjustment and is marked with the letter C. US model 1884 is pictured on top of the trapdoor. The letters MASS are stamped on top of the breech block in front of the trapdoor indicating this carbine may have been in the Massachusetts Armory in the 1880s.It was rumored by an 80 year old family member that this carbine was carried by their Grandfather in the Spanish American War. On left side of the stock to the rear of the saddle bar is a raised number 10. On the underside of the stock to rear of trigger guard is the number 45. The butt plate is marked US and contains the original cleaning rods and broken shell extractor. The bore is shinny and riffling is good. This carbine is original and in very good tight condition. It shoots well and will make a fine addition to any Indian Wars collection. This is an awesome carbine Don't miss out. Good luck and thanks for looking. This carbine could be a model 1873/77 even though it has an 84 trap door on it. I just read on line that the front sight cover and the holes for the cleaning rods were put on the 1873 in 1877. Any questions or concerns Please E-Mail me. Thanks Jerry W.
