Your rifle was made in 1883, but there is no usage data available.
228103 and 228110 were used by a Virginia militia unit in 1898, during the SAW, so yours probably had a similar history. However, you should definitely NOT infer that use of yours was in the same unit, as the arms were not issued in order.
