    Seeking information on Springfield Trapdoor Model 1884

    Don Walborn Newbie

      I am looking for any information about my Springfield Trapdoor Model 1884 Serial $80835. When made?   Markings of lower left Barrel in front of Breech  V, P, what appears to be a feather, then another P.  Also there is a letter "A" on the lower right side of barrel in front of breech.   What do these mean? Barrel length is approximately 33", but stock ends just in front of rear barrel band.  Did this originally have a full length wooden stock and then was cut down to a shorter stock. Is it worth trying to find parts to restore this piece to "near original"?  Thank you
