You cannot "restore" it for any reasonable sum, since it is a "Bannerman" put-together, but there is no reason why you could not be able to shoot it, with mild loads, so long as it is properly assembled. With a rimmed cartridge headspace is not much of an issue. The 1870 receiver should not be a disqualifier.
