Re: rod bayonet questions

I have seen at least two M1888 rod bayonet rifles with numbers in the 315000-320000 range with two piece trigger guards and TWO circle P proofs behind the guard. Is there an documentation that suggests some of the M1884 rod bayonet rifles were converted? Their relative scarcity compared to similar number of triangular M1880 rod bayonet models suggests that the not as many survivied as we would expect.
