There were only 341 Model 1870 carbines made and they were all produced in 1871. Standard bright barrel, original saddle ring bar and ring, and blued single band and trigger guard. Block is stamped “U.S. / MODEL / 1870” with an eagles head. Flat lock with beveled edges and standard Springfield Civil War markings in center "U.S. / SPRINGFIELD" with a large eagle and dated 1864 at tail, shield shaped checkering on hammer spur.
