Welcome Larry,

You have come to the correct site for info. Bar none!!

Lots of info here (see the main page) and books by our web host Al Frasca.

Production date: Jan-Mar. 1892

Last number for that qtr. is 541221

Does your rifle have the "Rod" bayonet or the traditional bayonet.

The breech block should be stamped 1884

The stamped cartouche on the left side of the stock will have initials and a date. The date correctly will be 1892.

Again, welcome to the world of Trapdoors.
