Sorry, I do not find anything between 31429 and 31483.
Good news is that your number is surrounded by carbines both ways.
I'd expect your receiver to be marked just "1896" without the word "Model", which was added at around 37100. Statistically, the plain "1896" stamping - which does occur on both carbines and rifles - is, according to Mallory, the least common of the several marking variations.
