    Seeking information about Springfield 1884 Trapdoor Rifle


      I am researching 2 Springfield 1884 Trapdoor Rifles that have had the barrels cut off about 2 inches past the end of the forward stocks.  I'm not sure what the series of the rifle is or how long the barrel should be for this model. I do want to find as much about it as I can. I would like to replace the barrel with one that is the original size that should be on it.  The Serial number is 447879 and it appears to have the typical markings on it as well.  Can I get any of this information with the serial number I provided or will I only find out that it was manufactured in 1889? Is there a place I can find out more about this Rifle?
