    So as a kid my grandfather died and left a rifle to my father and now he's given it to me. It's not a money thing, but more of a sentimental value. Sorry about the shitty pics not muchI can do from where I am at but here it is.

    Sprinfield Model 1873 45-70

    That's a nice looking trapdoor carbine. :cool:

    Pity someone put that rubber on what looks like the original stock though. :ugh:

    Yeah, it's been polished a bit to clean it, but it removed some of the original finish. And ya it is a shame about the rubber shoulder pad. Those things were done unfortuneately before my family took posession. I really like it otherwise and can't wait to shoot it.
