Very possibly is does reflect the 6th Cavalry.
There are five other M1873 carbines with 3 digit serial numbers which are documented to the 6th Cavalry. Of course, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades so this does not constitute proof, but it certainly adds credibility to that possibility.
