Serial number 112879 was stamped July-Sept 1879. Last number for that Qtr. is 113920. It could be a '73 or an Arsenal rebuild. Span-Am campaign refurb??

The breech block has probably been replaced at some point. Not a big deal as long as you know when yours was manufactured.

You could swap out the block for a '73 block if it bothers you.

Me. I would leave it alone and enjoy it as is.
