If it's a SPRINGFIELD ARMORY production, it was built in 1905.

If it's a ROCK ISLAND ARMORY production, it was built in 1907.

Are you sure the s/n is 807xx or is it a 807xxx? Makes a BIG difference in value.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That is why I edited it 807xx (only 5 digits).

Not bad for $250.00. As far as I know, it has not been reworked. And I believe that is serial #.
