Thanks for the replies.

The top of the breech is defintitely stamped U.S. Model 1873 near the trapdoor hinge. It's not the same part as the strike plate where the serial number is, so I guess it could be swapped parts. [Obviously my nomenclature could be off on these parts names, but I am guessing you guys know what I am talking about].

And the stamp of SWP 18xx on the stock appears to ends with either a 3 or 6 or 8. If it is a 0, there's sure a lot of extra marks in that digit. The last two digits are a bit faded.

I'll try to take some good photos.
