The "new" trigger officially dates from January 1883, but, not being a critical change, I'm sure the old ones were used up first, and there was probably a mixed period where guns assembled the same day might not have matching triggers. And, being part of a separate sub-assembly means that there is a real possibility of it having been being replaced over the years. In short, it is not a reliable marker, and would not have a verifiable changeover point.
