If the "1883" is marked on the lock plate, then this is one of the guns cobbled together by some of the surplus dealers circa 1880s-1900. These used a mix of surplus, scrap, salvaged, improvised and commercially made parts. Most are probably shootable, but with little or no collector interest. Values are very modest.
