    Seeking history of Springfield Trapdoor M1884 Carbine & Colt 1851

    Alessandro Da Pieve Newbie

      Hello , I recently bought 2 American guns and I would be interested in learning about their history.  Is it possible to know the year of production and if it was used by any specific regiment?  The first is a Springfield Trapdoor Model 1884 Carbine, serial Number 564511; in the butt of the carbine is engraved the number 15.

       


       

      The second is a Colt Navy Model 1851 , serial Number 150137.

       


       

      Is it possible to know the year of production and if it was used by any specific regiment?
