Greetings and welcome!

Serial number books not at hand, so cannot check exact number until this evening.

Your receiver was almost certainly made in 1879, not 1880, and you are correct, a Buffington sight would have to indicate an upgrade - which was VERY commonly done. In fact, sights were about the only part regularly upgraded without an overhaul (they did not call back arms just because the trigger profile changed, etc.)
