Trapdoor Carbine Model Year Designation

Posted by C. A. Russell on Thursday, 3 June 2010, at 4:15 p.m.

I have a "starred" serial number carbine 187653 with SWP cartouche dated 1882. The gun has an 1873 dated breechblock and 1873 dated lockplate. It has the carbine Buffington sight with M1890 sight-protector-barrel-band. What would be the correct model year designation or classification for this carbine - 1877, 1879, 1884, or ?????
