Re: 1884 trap door

The serial number is too low for it to be a '84.
Check the serial again by cocking the hammer & inspecting for another digit.
If it does have another digit it would be a '84.
Receiver date: (assuming 5 digits) Jan-Mar. 1875.
It appears that the rifle has been "sporterized" at some point.
