Without actually seeing the piece I could only guess why the barrel is stamped on a very low serial numbered receiver. (Replaced at some later date, maybe).
Do you have a high or low arch breech block??
Is the side plate stamped with a date (1873)?
What rear sight is on the piece? Buckhorn or Buffington.
Do you have pictures to email to one of us?
