Serial number and stock date agree.

1879 sight is believable, IF it has slotless screws and patina, crud line, etc. match barrel.

Block is fine, only ringer is the lockplate - really shouldn't have the date, but "parts is parts", and they DO show up unexpectedly from time to time - SA didn't care about collectors.

How's the bore?

If you could get it for what you think, I'd probably go for it - perhaps not a major coup, but you certainly wouldn't be overpaying, either.
