The Model 1896 in .30-40 was the Krag-Jorgensen.....which was a bolt-action rifle.

The Springfield "Trapdoor" was an entirely different rifle and action.

Which is it?

Sorry about that, I was not aware of that. This is a bolt action with door on right side of action for loading.

It's not worth very much.....however, if you'd like to make a fun project out of it, clean up all the exterior rust, give a "home-brew" cold bluing job, see if you can find a stock, and use it as a wall hanger.

if the action is tight and the chamber and bore aren't rusted shut, parts are available so it might make a shooter
