An identified Apache man with a Springfield musket posing in a photography studio in  Prescott, Arizona.

The Springfield musket, or rifle, was a standard infantry weapon of the U.S. Army from 1873-1936, taking their name from the Springfield Armory in Massachusetts. In 1866, the Army began adapting the muzzle-loading rifles to breech-loading, single-shot rifles by making a “trapdoor” for the breech with latch, firing pin, and extractor for the cartridge case. From 1873 to 1892 the armory turned out breech-loading, single-shot Springfield .45-70s (.45 calibre with 70 grains of black powder).
