Malcom, sadly a lot of parts did get swapped - some in service, but mostly later. "Model 1884" really refers to the improved sight adopted that year, and widely retrofitted. However, the perfectly good "1873" breechblocks in stock were used to exhaustion - apparently some time in 1887. Cannot say about the stock, though the "0" is usually fairly easy to differentiate.
