This would be a Model 1884, or also known as a model 88 because of the rod pattern. Commonly known as the "Rod Bayonet" model.
Production date is Jan-Mar 1893. This was the last of the Trapdoor rifles produced at SA. Last serial number for that Qtr. was 563562. Last kown serial number for the Apr-June Qtr. was 567882 depending on whose chart you choose to go by.
