Mod. 1884 Ser.# 563xxx

Posted by Terry A Roen on Wednesday, 10 October 2012, at 10:47 a.m.

I have owned a Mod. 1884 for 20 plus years. I am wondering if this rifle is a 1888 model. Because of the ser. # 563xxx it appears to be one of the last 250 1884 rifles made. Were the 1884 and 1888 models produced at the same time. My breach block is marked Model 1884. My ramrod bayonet appears to be an 1888 model ramrod. The rifle is in very good condition with a bright bore and shoots very well. Thanks for any information you may have.
