This is my 1/6 scale 1893 Godfrey rigged McClellan saddle atop a Mr. Z horse. There is a little difference between the 1885 and the 1893. Many of the 1885's were modified from a heart shape safe to a shield type safe with interlocking quarter straps to allow for adjustment. The front saddle rings were attached using a circular shape staple not used in the early 1885 saddles. This saddle is still using the 1887 boot scabbard with 1873 Springfield trapdoor carbine. Thanks for looking.
