Short & sweet: the man has a Bubba made from cutting down an 1868 Rifle.
I'm sure his gun also has the receiver with long nose.
Only the .45 arms M1873 and later) are numbered across the rear.
His comments, especially the 3000 one, are totally incorrect.
You may see proper examples of both arms (1868 Rifle & 1870 Carbine) at www.picturetrail.com/sa4570af, as well as on the home page here - link below.
