Could you explain this in more detail?  

Harper's Ferry didn't make "production" pieces?  So a gun wasn't able to shoot a projectile from the ones at Harpers Ferry?  

What is meant by "model" pieces?  Did they have to be shipped to another location then for completion (which I assume is then Springfield)?

Harpers Ferry only made the pattern or "model" pieces.  It didn't make any production pieces.  Manufacture was at Springfield, with some limited contract production by D. Nippes, and L. Pomeroy.
