From what you have supplied, you SEEM to have a Model 1870 Rifle, which has had the stock (and possibly the barrel?) shortened at some point in time after official use. Personally, I cannot verify, or disprove, your interpretation of the LNG marking(s). In "as-issued" configuration, Model 1870 rifles are quite desirable, since only about 12,000 were produced.
