Fewer than 500 Officer's Model rifles were produced during a ten-year manufacturing run from 1875 to 1885. These were not issued by the Army, but were available for purchase by officers for sporting use. This single-shot target rifle, manufactured in 1882, was owned by NRA President George Wingate. The Springfield Officer's rifle can be seen at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
