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 U.S. Government military rifle has a visible cartouche and features an adjustable rear sight. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in fair condition.
