The numbers you see on the yoke and face of the butt that match each other are production numbers, to keep parts together during assembly and finishing. The SN will be on the bottom of the butt frame and inside the yoke cut on the frame, and will start with an "S" if the gun was built 1968 or earlier, and an "N" if built after 1968. Your 1979 gun will be a square butt.
