    I have my Great Grandfathers Springfield 1884 trapdoor 45/70. I was wanting to get it worked on sometime in the near future and wondered who you would recommend (refinished , replace missing screws and parts). Obviously I dont want to take it to joe schmoe as it is a family heirloom so to speak. Any help you guys could give me would be GREAT!

    Have you tried Gun Parts (Numrich) ? Its ancient but they have a lot of stuff.

    I would really like something a little more local, but I wont rule him out.

    Replacing parts would be okay but refinishing would destroy the collector's value. Parts Ideally should be of the same vintage.
