what you have is a converted civil war 58 cal. musket. After the civil war those muskets were converted to 50/70 cal (trapdoor) center fire rifles. Later the 45/70 (trapdoor) came into being. Value depends on overall condition of the rifle................

I would be hard pressed to assign a value to your Springfield trapdoor rifle with out having you describe the overall condition of the rifle in question.Please describe the amount of original finish remaining,the condition of the stock,and bore.I will also need to know if the stock has the correct cartouches stamped on it,and the amount of blueing left on the metal of your rifle.With this info I would be able to asses a correct value to your rifle.

you probably have a civil war percussion rifle that was converted to (trapdoor) 50/70 center fire cartridges. value would depend on condition - wood, metal, bore...........any rust, pitts, etc, etc, etc

The value is the rifle is worth somewhere between $200 and $250. The exact amount will depend upon the condition of the rifle.

400-900 dollars,depending on the condition of your rifle,and that your rifle is in its original condition.

Before we can answer your question,we would need to know what type of rifle your are talking about? Is it a M-1 garand, a 1903 springfield, or a 1903-A3 rifle?

There was a long production line of 45/70 trapdoors in model 1873. To locate the year of production you must use the serial number of your trapdoor. The value depends on overall condition and if it's a carbine or rifle. The rifle value is est. $500 - 700 plus or minus. Carbines are $1200 and up.

Please add the model of the rifle to your question so we could help you.

depending on overall condition $300 $800

If your rifle is a original M-1 Garand rifle,not a recent Springfield Amory model;then your serial number indicates that your rifle was made in the year 1941.
