Yes, many rifles were refinished by government facilities. If you provide the full number (since you KNOW it wasn't stolen, why the x's?) I'm sure Pete or Ernie will look it up for you.
As to the date - while 1873 blocks MAY correctly appear well into 1887; one should NOT infer that an 1884 block cannot occur earlier than 1887.
