Springfield Trapdoor Rifle Old West

SLX600 Goose Camo See More

The War Department needed to replace their excellent muzzle loading muskets with metallic cartridge rifles by the end of the American Civil War in 1865. By 1866 the first transformation of a muzzle loading musket to cartridge use appeared, and in 1868 the first “Trapdoor Rifle” was created. Further modified in 1870, and again three years later, a new rifle emerged. Chambered in 45-70, the revolutionary Springfield Trapdoor answered the call to duty.

Many rifles, and of many variations, were produced over the following twenty years; basic Trapdoors for American Soldiers, smooth bored versions for cadets, target variations, and pieces destined specifically to Officers’ hands, including General George Armstrong Custer. The Springfield Trapdoor even served during the Spanish-American War of 1898 and 1899.

Davide Pedersoli Company is pleased to offer flawless reproductions of the three most historically significant models: the US Army Rifle (S.905), the US Cavalry Carbine (S.900), and the Officer’s Rifle (S.910), the latter equipped with a single set trigger, rear sight, and Creedmoor sight adjustable for both elevation and windage.

All Trapdoor reproductions from Davide Pedersoli follow the originals perfectly, blending traditional manufacturing handcraft with the state-of-the-art technology available in the twenty first century.

Deluxe (L) and Extra Deluxe (LL) versions are characterized by rich engravings which extend to the stock bands on the Extra Deluxe along with gold inlay.
