Production date of receiver Oct.-Dec. 1887. Serial number 387645 is last for Dec.
Check the Cartouche date stamp to determine assembly date. This will give you a "range" only as to actual DOM. My guess is that the date will be 1888.
I have over 25 Trapdoors & NO info on a single one. EXCEPT one carbine receiver. But sadly it's not a complete unit.
