The serial number dates to Oct-Dec 1886.

I doubt that you have a SA referb weapon.

The assembly appears to be a gunsmith? reblue job.

The Breech Block from the Springfield Armory would in all cases be stamped with a date.

My guess is that this is a Bannerman's build or other assembler of surplus parts.
