Pics will help a lot, it may be a commercial built rifle and that wouldnt have the date on it. Who made the rifle?

Definitely need some pictures. The Indians are also known for scrubbing old marks off of rifles. Without some pictures we can't tell you a whole lot.

What markings (if any) are there?
Is there, for example a crown stamped there?
