Serial numbers ending in x's are really hard to find in my SA list.
You have just about pegged this one correctly except the piece is a Model '73, not '79.
Production date of the receiver runs in Jan-Mar 1882. This variance in date from the Cartouche is no big deal. Stuff like that happened all the time at SA.
The piece looks correct, in that all parts are correct for production date.
When you get tired of it give me a chance to buy it. I am a buyer!!!!
