your trapdoor was manufactured in 1880
you are probably referring to a trapdoor in 45/70 caliber. Value would depend on overall condition..........................
your trapdoor was made in 1881. there is seldom any history unless obtained from owners family who would know much about the gun and owner.
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
I would say the year of Manufacture is about 1890 or 91 I have an 1884 Ser.#54689 It was made in June of 1892
in a basement
Well it depends on the condition, if it is a long gun or a carbine , or has the saddle ring on the left side. which would be the most valuble. if the rifle is not reblued or the stocks redone and is about 95% condition some collector might pay as high as $800.
The value of a Springfield 20 gauge pump shotgun would actually depend on a number of factors. Some of these factors would be the age and the condition of the shotgun.
think if someone asked you what is my 'ford' worth?? You would ask a number of questions...... In your case is it a rifle or carbine ? what is the condition of metal, wood, bore. what is serial number. Is it a 50/70 cal (early conversion) or 45/70 later model...........today the trapdoor can bring anywhere from $400 to $1500, depending...
Roughly $100, depending on condition.
value would depend on overall condition. a picture might show that.............
