Springfield Rifles

Rifles that bear the Springfield name have a long history of serving the United States in wars. The Springfield armory in Springfield, Massachusetts produced 23 rifle designs for the United States military, each representing some of the best firearm technology at the time.

From 1777 until the armory closed in 1968, Springfield produced a variety of different weapons. However, Springfield will always be most well known for their rifles.

Springfield produced a number of rifled muskets that served the Union Army in the Civil War including the model 1855, one of the first weapons to use the Minie conical ball round. The Model 1861 and 1863 introduced small improvements on the 1855 design. Springfield adapted with the times and produced single-shot breech-loading rifles, including the famed Springfield trapdoor breech loader. As times changed, Springfield manufactured famed firearms including the Springfield 1903 bolt-action rifle and the classic M1 Garand.
