Calling a present day Arms manufacturer about your rifle would be a total waste of time. These rifles/carbines/et al. have nothing to do with the current company called Springfield Armory. For that matter, non of the current companies with "Springfield" in their names.

Receiver 335255 was stamped out in the 3rd Qtr. of 1886. The last number for that Qtr. is 335915.
