DOM Apr-June 1874 on receiver. Last number for the Qtr. was 28032
ALL '73 & newer receivers are 4&13/16th inches long
The Barrel was butchered at some later date.
That barrel length would not allow the bullet to stabilize for flight as it would not make even the first rotation in the barrel.
Carbine barrel would be 22" Cadet barrel is 29.60" Rifle barrel is 32.60"
