zombiekiller117: Eventually all the raping and baby killing Indians suffered immense agony. 'Karma' is a bitch, Anti-White
MrFattyfatfatboy: custers guns only had two stops,how does this have three.
twforster15: Good rifle
Alessandro Consiglio: serve il porto d armi
smelzodeath: That was a great victory for Americas original "Homeland Security", Custer was a child & woman killer............ I hope the 7th Cav baby killers all suffered immense agony that day. Karma is a real bitch.
Nickstick25isawesome: Did the cavalry use winchester repeaters as well?
IAN SHEEPSFOOT: 1:33 that little trooper second from the end...needs to go back to basic training.... YOU SLOVENLY SOLDIER>>>> your not even aiming ..> no wonder Crazy Horse's warriors went through them, like a dose of salts.
jjd705: I've shot this rifle,it's really accurate and has a lot of power.
Glenn Grubb: nice early carbine it has the proper long wrist stock and other parts like the hammer that are hard to find I know, I have one made in 1874
NoOdL3z18: I have the standard long barrel version of this Rifle, it belonged to my Great Great Great Grandfather when he was in the Army back in 1875 - 1890. It has been sitting on family fireplaces since then. I have the 18" bayonet and an older cavalry saber with it. All the parts move as they should and there is even some grease left, no rust, no major cracks in the stock. I will probably never fire it of course, it looks great as a display/conversational piece.
HuskerSeaofRed: Worth what approx.? $
top8889: SHOW HOW the SAFETY works..!!!!! That is known by few...!! top
Assassinus2: Apparently, the original ammunition (or at least what was issued to the 7th Cavalry) was copper-cased. Copper is rather softer than brass, so it was easier for the extractor to rip the rim (and possibly the base) off the cartridge. The cartridge could also get jammed in the breech due to the pressures of firing.
etornel79: that carbine had..RANGE...
pigwigpa: Didn't the trapdoor have a bad habit of ripping the shell casing. I think I heard something about it years ago, But it might had been crappy ammo
cookervillpop101: i found a mint condition 1873 for $1800
ThePlaceCannel: When the US Army helmet was a Picklehaube, ahh i wish i could time travel.
woody3757: well lucky you :)
hogsnplanes: I had a spare I used, thanks. I will keep you in mind though if I need another.
SandhillDigger: Excellent Video, one question. I do not doubt the authenticity of this weapon, but I believe the unaltered carbines only had two clicks on the hammer where you demonstrated three distinct clicks or positions when roostering it. Thanks for posting this, very nice and up close.
ColonelGeorgeACuster: These jammed alot.
allsportsbandfan: @Bullzeye95 I'd like to ask if the defenders were using brass or copper case bullets? I remember reading about copper getting jammed due to the heat of the rifle after several shots. This was said to have contributed to the massacre at Little Bighorn.
kagi95: Thank you so much for the close up extractor shot. I really needed that because I'm building a model of it. I couldn't get a better shot if I had even asked for it specifically. Great gun, great video.
clewi1091: How much did these guns weigh?
SS13E3: "have you ever seen so many freaking indians in all your life?"
Bruno47602: Good Work!
benissocoolFACT: Ha, Thinking about it, it is very simple!
Slim: Theresa guy selling one of these in the classifieds for 1200 bucks i think, is that a good deal?
Dietrich Wolfinger: i have this rifle in pristine condition , so i got an apraiser for the value , he didnt give me an exact price , dooes anybody know it?
Ghstwn: Oh, and let's forget just how well the 7th Calvary did at Little Big Horn armed with 1873 Springfield's.
Opps!,... Was that a spoiler? :O Damn! ;)
( PS. Those of you without recognition of humor,.. just don't respond please.)
educatedcockroach: More of a cost issue, manufacturing practices didn't need to be changed much to make them and pre-existing rifles and carbines could be modified into them. It was still a good gun once the jamming issues were solved, just a bit too late. The trapdoor and the M14 in the late 50s (chosen over a version of the famous G3 assault rifle) have similar stories: excellent weapons if they had been around a decade earlier.
BuickDoc: The army always prepares for the last war. The Generals making the decisions about equipment were veterans of the Civil War. They believed that rapid loading weapons would encourage the soldiers to waste ammo...
phugedaboudet: As a "military style" or "military issue" rifle, this was almost removed from Curio and Relic status in CA last year. Which means it would have been classed the same as an AR-15 or AK-47. Someone try to tell me that politicians aren't truly "anti-gun" at that stage, and that my GF's father's 45-70 trapdoor is an assault rifle that should be regulated, taxed separately, then banned? It's single shot fer chrissakes!
stalrunner: These are now allowed during primitive weapon season for hunting deer in Mississippi. I might eventually try to get myself one.
nosaltadded: June 25-26 1876. Not July. Error: ID 10 T.....IDIOT!
ugslamma: Why the foul language?
MackinacIs: That looks like a long-wrist, low serial numbered, two-click tumbler Springfield carbine model of 1873. If it is, it's highly valuable.
I like the view of Fort Mackinac, too. Great place.
MackinacIs: June 25, 1876 I believe. Don't want to get there a month late.
jake tehtwothousand: beautiful rifle ya got there misser.
topolino2: Custer s desparate troopers spent precious seconds prying the "spent" copper shell casing from the breech,,using their fingers or their knives! ( hot rifle, soft copper) ..while being picked off with "Henry and Winchester repeating rifles..
What a great "con" by Springfield Armory on U S Army Quartermasters!
who got the "lobby" money on this one?
ibidydo: when did american soldiers get the picklehaubes and where did the get them from. cause i remember hearing about british regiments helping out in the american civil war
JBproduction98: where do u get a replaca
hogsnplanes: I can't wait to get mine shooting!, no firing pin yet.
JohnJaggerJack: NICE GUN!! very cool design!
ahkoifish: The Battle of Little Big Horn was a battle that took place between the Native Americans and General Custer where he had his famous last stand know as Custer's Last Stand. It was considered one of the greatest military disasters in American history.
brokenlizardboys: the British Martini-Henry had a much faster firing rate then this because they didnt have to rooster the hammer
Druisteen Do: please what are the battle of little big horn ?.
nice gun like the fusil a tabatierre
AlienZygote010: wow. now those are some bragging rights.
silver760: I'm glad they knew that primer was oiled!
Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
