Springfield Trapdoor SN: 125579

Purchased a Springfield carbine last week while in Prescott AZ. According to the Springfield SN lookup book I do know what I have to be an 1879 upgrade of the Model 1873 and was manufactured in 1880.

Surrounding serial numbers place it with the 6th Cavalry. However, I'd like to know for sure the actual history and assignment of this particular weapon. Was it assigned to the 6th Cav or did it go somewhere else?
