This is a solid, tight Springfield Trapdoor Model 1884 carbine with serial number 344739 , manufactured at the Springfield Armory in 1886.
The serial number of 344739 is clear on the receiver; all the barrel markings are clear. The wood is solid, without the breaks or chips or cracks so often seen on these carbines, and has the SWP over 1886 inspector’s acceptance cartouche on the wrist of the stock just behind the sling bar.
The barrel bore is rifling is sharp and crisp, much better than average for these black powder guns. The mechanics are perfect. This is an attractive example of one of the iconic weapons of the old west, used from the early Indian Wars through the Spanish America War.

Shipping costs will be different depending on where I am shipping to. That means that the shipping costs listed in my auctions are an estimate based on averages, but once you have won the auction, I will send you the actual cost of shipping.
All items that I sell will have a 3-day inspection with full sales price refund minus all shipping charges when returned in same condition as shipped. ALL items are sold in USED AS-IS condition and as "Collector Curios and Antiques" with NO guarantees, warranties, or liabilities implied or given for shooting or any other use. ANY inferences or comments made by me as to shooting condition is for informational description purposes ONLY and is NOT meant or intended to be a guarantee or inference of the item's safety for firing!!

I will ship outside of the US, but it is not possible to fully insure items once they are outside of the U.S. postal system...but if the buyer accepts this responsibility of possible damage or loss, and if he checks his Customs laws and is legal to import this particular antique weapon, then I MAY ship outside the USA, depending on the country involved. I know the federal laws about shipping antiques, and will follow them always...but you must make sure that it is legal for you where you live to receive and possess the item you want to buy. Please e-mail for any unclear terms.
