The serial number suggests it is a .45-70, and the barrel markings suggest that the barrel is one originally made for another rifle and later modified by one of the surplus dealers like Bannerman or Schuyler Hartley amp Graham to assemble with other surplus parts into shootable rifles. No telling how far out of specifications the barrel threads might have been. A lot of the parts they used were condemned parts which failed inspection, so the receiver may have had problems as well PYour best bet is to just trash the existing barrel and receiver and get another. They are fairly easy to find and prices are reasonable. Al Frasca who hosts this site often has some quotshooter gradequot barreled receivers, or maybe Ed Kneisly. PGood luck.
