Yes a 4 digit serial number rifle in fine condition rare and all correct First Model 1873 Trapdoor rifle in .45-70. Like many other infantry rifles that were built during relative "peace time" after a major conflict, the .45-70 Trapdoor Springfield rifle was constantly being updated and modified by Springfield during the 20 year period that the weapon was in production. In fact no less than eight distinct "models" of .45-70 trapdoors have been identified by collectors; and that's not even counting the pre -.45-70 conversion trapdoors. With this many different models floating around on the collector market, a natural attraction to first model 1873's has grown amongst the collector market; as there were fewer made then any of the subsequent models, and a majority of them were sent back to arsenal during the 1880's to be "updated" with new production features. As a result, true, unmodified First Model 1873 rifles are a rarity.

This rifle is one of the few that was never re-arsenaled; and is exactly as it was when it left the Springfield arsenal in late 1873 to early 1874. It features a long wrist stock, first pattern lock and hammer, first pattern thumb latch, type 1 cleaning rod, musket-style one piece front sight, 1873 rear sight and cross arrow marks on the block. Not one component of this rifle is incorrect or reproduction. The serial number is a 4 digit 2113 you will never find another and has case colors on the lock hammer and original blue on barrel making it in fine condition.
