Sir, I'm pretty sure that at the time your rifle was made,there were no receiver markings. There are members here though,that can definitely answer this question. Welcome aboard this forum. You'll find the members to be very friendly and helpful.
Thanks for your time,

doclane,

Early Model 8's were not marked because they were not yet called the "Model 8" until 5+ years into production (or something like that).

180XX equates to a 1910 production rifle.
