For sale is an excellent condition 1884/1888 round rod bayonet trapdoor rifle in 45-70 govt. caliber. This is a rare specimen because serial #318635 was made in 1886, and falls right in the middle of the serial number range of the 1,004 experimental Model 1884 round rod bayonet rifles. Like most of the experimental 1884 Models, this one was later updated to Model 1888 configuration. Excellent metal finish. All proofs present. Buttplate and bands "U" marked. Excellent unsanded stock with weak but visible cartouche (see photo). Oiled leather repro sling included. Price reduced to $1,095 shipped. This fine rifle is an antique and can ship to you door with no FFL transfer fees. Additional photos available to serious inquiries. Thank you.
