Default How about some American Made C&R's

Any firearms that are at least 50 years old and American made. I'll start with a 1873 Trapdoor Springfield rifle. This one came with a spare barrel and hammer. You just swap out the barrel and hammer and instead of having a 45/70, you have a 45 cal. muzzleloader.

I have a nice 1884 trapdoor. I'm not fan of the buffington sight though. Nice cartouches and inspection marks. I live single shot rifles. I have a replica 1885 high wall too but that probably doesn't qualify for this thread.

Default 1873 Trapdoor Springfield Carbine

I debated as to whether to even include pictures of this one because of its condition but decided to go ahead. I decided it is a good candidate for restoration. I have talked to the guys at www.oldgundoctor.com and they have agreed to do the work but are booked up until September. I'll let these be the "before" pictures and will post "after" pictures when its finished. The gun seems to be in fairly good mechanical condition but is missing a few parts such as most of the rear sight and the bar and ring off the left side of the receiver and the front sight appears to be home made. And of course the finish bites but they say they can bring it most of the way back. We shall see.

The Muzzle loading conversion kits were sold back in the 1960s by Numrich Arms.

That is correct. My barrel is labeled Numrich Arms. I'm not sure if a ramrod was part of the kit but if it was I don't have it.

Pictures of your 1884 Trapdoor would be welcomed.

How about a 1943 M1 Carbine? Made by National Postal Meter in July, 1943. It had the bayonet lug, flip safety, and rear sight added post-war. It was then shipped to South Korea during the war and stayed there for a while, someone carved what appears to be their initials in the left side of the stock may it be from a US service member or a South Korean soldier.

It looks like it says "CGF 3" i could be wrong. Me and my uncle sat for 30 minutes with a flashlight and magnifying glass trying to see what it says.

This is another rifle I picked up on the worlds longest yard sale a few years ago.
