No offense taken, and I apologize for not responding to your answer to MY question, which, as it happened came in while I was out of town.
Guess I'm not exactly clear on what you wanted - for instance, I don't get the significance of the black angle at all.
I did not find any usage data for that specific serial number, which rifle was assembled in 1885, as per the date on the stock. It may have seen SAW service with a state militia unit; many trapdoors did.
