That is strange - I have had several similar failures over the years, ALL involving some permutation of the words "Model 1870".

To answer your question, the rod IS wrong - whether it is a repro, or simply from another rifle, I cannot say.

I just HAVE to ask: is the rear sight tight to the receiver, or about 7/16" ahead of it? Thanks. I would trade a decent "normal" (7/16") Model 1870, PLUS cash, for an equivalent condition "tight" version.
