I haven't bought it yet.  Probably going to do so next month or in August (depending on how a few things go)   Looking forward to it.   Speaking of John Ford Reference library.  I remember all his movies having the Cavlary using Trapdoor Carbines and everybody else (cowboys, ranchers etc.) using Winchesters or Henrys.    Fort Apache, She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, Rio Grande, The Searchers, Cheyenne Autumn.   

I look forward to getting this rifle.  It is classic looking and will go well with my U.S. stamped Uberti Schofield 7 inch.    I always like to have long gun hand gun combos for all my guns.

I have a M-1 Carbine and AR-15 to go with a Springfield Armory G.I. 1911A1.   I have two Colt Official Polices and a S&W M-15 to go with a Remington 870 Police Magnum 12 gauge.    I have a S&W M-28 6 inch .357 Magnum and a Python 4 inch and a Ruger Super Blackhawk 10 inch .44 Magnum to go with my Remington 700 .30-06.   

Now I am after a Springfield Trapdoor Carbine to go with my 7 inch Schofield

I paired up my 44 Colt Richards conversion with an 1866 Trapdoor barreled action I restocked with the Mississippi musket I got cheap.  44 Colt and 50-70 makes for a smokey afternoon shooting!

I love combos!
Sometimes 3 ways and swapping are nice too  :o :o  ;)
My matching uberti Milleniums go nicely with my Uberti '73. My Uberti Schofield goes nicely  with my Pedersoli Trapdoor rifle and my Uberti Colt Cav. model goes nicely with my H&R Officers model trapdoor but sometimes the Schofield goes with the H&R and sometimes the Uberti Colt goes with the Pedersoli. :)
