Hey folks, I am new here! I found a very old rifle in my grandma's basement that I was hoping to identify. She does not know much about it as a family friend gave it to her. It has some worn engravings on the metal behind the hammer, I can only really make out that it was made in 1873. It has a ramrod, so I think I am at least posting in the right subforum!
Any help identifying this rifle is greatly appreciated, Thanks!
Edit: Upon a closer look it appears there are multiple dates listed, I can see many month names....weird
