Those are some beautiful trapdoors, thank you for sharing them. Could you give me breakdown of what all they are?

while on the subject of the US manufactured Mosin Nagant 1891 rifle, you should know that Remington converted one to fire the 30 cal Pedersen in a Pedersen device made for the Mosin Nagant. Magazine was on the left side

Thanks! From left to right - Model 1865 (1st Allin conversion); M1866 (2nd Allin); M1868; M1870; M1873 (updates of 1879 - made in 1883); and M1888 (made in 1891).

I do have a couple more not pictured - an 1870 carbine and an 1886 experimental carbine - but I still need 1873 and 1884 carbines.

That is a great collection of trapdoors. My few are a 73 type 1 Custer range carbine, 1866 2nd allin conversion, and an 1884 rod bayonet.

Heck, a Custer-era carbine is gonna be one of the crown jewels of any collection - long wrist, sling swivel, early sights…it looks in great condition.

Thank you. The Lord really blessed me when he placed me in the right place at the right time with the right resources available to be able to be its caretaker for a time.

Don't know if you're aware of this site, but I've scored a nice M1842 Springfield (lock dated 1847, barrel dated 1852) and a M1816 Springfield cone in barrel conversion (lock and barrel dated 1835) from here.
They happen to have a M1841 Whitney-made Mississippi rifle for sale right now.

I like the contrast of the DD MK18 at the end of the line.
