Re: Model 1870 first production run

The door says 1870 (not Model 1870). The rear site is against the receiver and the receiver is the small version. Rifle has the 1868 ramrod. Barrel is smooth. Clasp that opens the trapdoor is more round and is not square. Other markings are common. 510 is where the serial number is on other models but not on the receiver.
