A standard of the Old West, the Model 1873 Trapdoor was the first standard-issued breech-loading rifle adopted by the United States Army. The rifle was named for its hinged breechblock, which opens like a trapdoor. Among other features, this model incorporates a unique bayonet which also served as a cleaning rod and was carried full time and retracted under the barrel except in use. This early model US Government military rifle features a 32-1/2" blued barrel with an adjustable rear stock, a half-cock on hammer safety, and a non-original stock. Its wood and bore are in good condition and its metal is in very good condition.
