Trapdoor Barrel Actions

Three M73 Barreled Actions

These rifles have serial numbers close together and in the Metcalfe range. They all have the small V/P/Eagle and are missing the last P, which is correct for the serial number range. They all have solid front sights and one has an M73 rifle sight retained with Armory slotless screws. Some of these serial numbers are close to guns turned-in by the 5th Infantry in 1878.
