Tony, your rifle would have been produced early in fiscal year 1881 there were 14,863 rifles produced 10,000 carbines,500 cadet rifles, 1,014 triangle rod bayonet rifles and 151 lomg range rifles. You may be assured that the damage inflicted on your rifle was done LONG after it left the service of any organized military unit. Hope this helps.
