Re Model 84 with Receiver96596

While definitely an oddity, your rifle is not unique. There are quite a few -out of range- M1884 rifles known, more or less exactly as you have described, and appearing to be totally original arsenal assembled except for the serial number being way, way off. I dont think they are the result of overhauls, but rather a case of a bunch of older receivers being found in a dark corner and finally assembled into complete rifles many years after the receiver was made and numbered.
