Springfield manufactured approximately 73,000 Model 1873 rifles and carbines between 1873 and 1877. They were the first trapdoors chambered for the 45-70 cartridge.

Carbine barrel is blued and secured to the short fore stock with one barrel band. Barrels were not proof marked under serial number 50,000. Rear sight is long range and the front is a blade sight. Bore is bright with rifling. Lock is marked in front of the hammer with the spread-winged eagle and “US/SPRINGFIELD/1873”. The breechblock was marked “MODEL / 1873 / [eagle head] / (worn) crossed arrows / US”. Mechanically strong and crisp. All gun metal parts are uniform in color and condition.

The stock is unmarked and apparently a period re-stock. Other than minor dings from use, the stock is in very good condition. Saddle ring and bar on left side. “US” marked butt plate.  A very good condition carbine.  [jet]
