Trapdoors such as this one were used in hundreds of movies and wielded by many great stars. Walter O'Connor had a tag on this carbine attributing its use to star Audie Murphy, although no further information could be located. The carbine is a standard Springfield Model 1884, serial number 379375. Left side of 1884 dated breech stamped "FOX" and "NJ" and on top with inventory number "233." Left side of the stock is stamped in large letters "N.Y. MP CO" and the bottom of the forend is stamped with a Fox Studios cartouche. The rifle is in rough condition due to its use in many films, but complete other than the front site blade. With some diligent research, one might be able to identify this rifle in an Audie Murphy movie. Many of the Fox Studio prop guns were sold at auction in 1988, this example being one of them. This is a chance to own a true piece of re-searchable Western American Movie history.
