For the info. 1884 models had a thicker hinged breech block, and Fully adjustable Buffington rear sight, and also serated triggers. That's a model 1873 you have. I've got a book on Trapdoors for reference.

Yes sir, I have it listed as a model 1873. This 1873 was manufactured during the year 1883 according to the serial number 223816. All original

Yep no problem. I have 3 of them. A 1884 west point Cadry model in 45-70 with bayonet, an 1868 Allen conversion model from 58 cal Springfield muzzle loader to 50-70 breechloader, and an H&R Little Bighorn Commemorative carbine model like new in 45-70, they are fun to shoot and a nostalgic piece of American history.
