Difficult to answer because of the number of variations of the 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle. A good place to start looking to identify your specific rifle is: THE U.S. SPRINGFIELD TRAPDOOR RIFLE INFORMATION CENTER @ http://www.trapdoorcollector.com/
Start by reading the manual on the rifle. The link below will take you to an on-line copy of the original military manual.
your springfield model 1903 rifle is valued from 600-900 dollars at this time.this all depend,s on the amount of original finish left on the rifle,s metal and wood.The bore must also be in clean and shootable condition.The rifle you have was made by springfield in 1910,and the heat treatment to the recievers did not start until serial number 800,000.be careful of shooting any high pressure 30-06 loads in your old springfield.

You need to start by doing some more research into what the rifle is. After the 1840s, all Springfield muzzle loading rifles were caplock, so there were no 1862s converted. Also, in order to determine value, the rifle has to be graded for condition. This needs to be done professionally to get it right.
A muzzleloading rifle caplock single shot rifle. At the start of the war, each unit supplied it's own arms, and they could be quite different. Later the rifle was standardized after the Springfield musket.
time travel.I would start my search at Numrich Gun Parts Corp.
I paid $25.00 for this rifle and I'm going to try to restore it. I need the year it was made before I start so I do not damage the value of it by doing so.

Need more information. Start with the manufacturer or trade name marked on the rifle. I can find 50 or more models that COULD have a 7-digit serial number with a B prefix.
