Red Dead Wiki
For the Red Dead Redemption variant, see Springfield Rifle.

The Springfield Rifle, officially named the Lancaster Springfield, is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.


A military favorite, the Lancaster Springfield is a powerful breech-loading weapon designed for medium to long-range combat. The high accuracy makes this weapon effective against large mammals, but the slow firing rate may be an issue when trapped in close quarters. This gun is a single-shot weapon, and can use Regular, High Velocity, Split Point, Express and Explosive rifle ammo.


This rifle is available from all gunsmiths after completing "Eastward Bound".

It is obtained for free during "Sodom? Back to Gomorrah".

In Red Dead Online, the rifle is $156.00 and becomes available for purchase after reaching Rank 38.

  • The Springfield Rifle is based on the Springfield Model 1888 “Trapdoor” rifle, as evidenced by its ramrod bayonet. It appears to be shortened somewhat compared to the real full size rifle.
  • Unlike the Red Dead Redemption version, which was a four-shot rifle which reloaded similar to a Repeater, this version is modeled accurately, the rifle is a single-shot breechloader and the reload animation involves the protagonist pulling back the hammer to half-cock, opening the "trapdoor", putting a round into the breech, closing the "trapdoor" and finally pulling the hammer all the way back.
  • According to the Weapon Catalogue's description, the rifle was created as a conversion of old muzzle-loading rifles used during the American Civil War. This parallels the history of the real life "Trapdoor Springfield", which were originally created as breechloading conversions of the Springfield Model 1861 and Model 1863 muzzle-loading rifles.
  • With a scope attached, the rifle can be a strong alternative for the Rolling Block Rifle.
