Oh, I never doubted that an 1873 barrel would fit an 1870 receiver, or vice-versa.

What I cannot undersatnd is how they get an 1873 barrel into an 1868 receiver - apparently the threads are "moved" by relocating the shoulder and then making the shank portion longer by turning off some of the threads. Must be a neat trick to get it correctly indexed.
