    Seeking information on Springfield model 1884 Trapdoor Rifle

    George Pisani Wayfarer

      I am interested in the Springfield model 1884 Trapdoor Rifle : Mine is s/n 532847, but bolt (the trapdoor) is clearly stamped U.S. model 1884. So, seemingly was manufactured Oct-Dec 1891. Rifle is correct "round rod", and in all other details. Were bolts not stamped 1888 on later manufacture rifles? Or perhaps the bolt on mine was replaced during an arsenal rebuild?
