At the end of the Civil War (1865), the war department had to replace the excellent muzzle loading muskets with metallic cartridge rifles. Between 1865 and 1866 appeared the first transformation of a muzzle loading Springfield musket made by Allin and in 1868 the first ?Trapdoor Rifle? was built, further modified in 1870; three years later a new rifle in the .45-70 caliber answered to all the exigencies. During the following 20 years quite a big number of Springfield Trapdoor rifles have been manufactured, among them also many versions with smooth barrel for cadets, for the target shooting and destined to the Officers. The Springfield Trapdoor rifle is a typical gun of the American soldiers, including General Custer. It equipped the troops also during the Spanish-American War (1898-1899). Davide Pedersoli Co. is pleased to be able to offer flawless reproductions of the three most significant models: the U.S. Army Rifle (S.905), the U.S. Cavalry Carbine (S.900) and the Officer?s Rifle (S.910), this last equipped with a single set trigger, rear sight (USA 473) and Creedmoor sight adjustable in elevation and windage. All of these follow the originals perfectly and blend traditional gunsmith?s handcraft arts to state of the art technology.
