    It's a mutilated M1888 trapdoor Springfield. Probably some useful parts on it.

    You're both wrong. It's an AR-47 with high capacity assault clips capable of shooting 200,000,000 high caliber, heat seeking, cop-killer, exploding AK-15s every minute!

    You watch. There will be some gun control activist that will quote me on that!

    A weapon of war that has no place on our streets. Please think of the children.

    It looks like a Springfield trapdoor with a broken hammer. I'm guessing it's either .45/70 or if it's an early model it may be .50/70.

    It's actually one of the only guns the grabbers might be OK with us owning.

    Update: it is a Springfield Quaker training rifle. Never knew such a thing existed.
