Pre-Owned - US Springfield 1884 (1873) .45-70 Rifle w/ Bayonet
In 1873 the caliber of the “Trapdoor” rifle was again reduced, this time to .45. Since it was not practical to convert .58 caliber muskets to this small size, Springfield Armory began the new construction of the “Trapdoor” rifles. They remained in production, with modifications, until 1893. This was the weapon, both rifle, and carbine, that served the U.S. Army so well during the Indian Wars on the Western Frontier and in the Spanish-American War. In twenty years of production, almost half of a million .45-70 caliber weapons were manufactured at Springfield. The bayonet is made of top quality high carbon steel reproduction U.S. Model 1873 Socket Bayonet. The blade and socket are blued, the bayonet is 18.5" length and 0.75" width. It also comes with a sheath and overall condition is fantastic with normal wear & tear for a century-old firearm!
