Don't think there is a partial serial number data base. Might what to show some pics of arsenal marks/shape of triangle/import marks/ star, etc. or other. What you posted shows nothing.

From the serial number it's an 18th year rifle (1973):

"1973: Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 18,000,000’s.
1974: Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 19,000,000’s.
1975: Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 20,000,000’s.
1976: Rectangle/Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 21,000,000’s.
1977: Diamond/Rectangle/Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 22,000,000’s.
1978: Oval/Rectangle/Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 23,000,000’s.
1979: Diamond/Oval/Rectangle/Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 24,000,000’s.
1980: Rectangle/Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 25,000,00’s.
1983: Triangle Arsenals, S/N in the 28,000,000’s.
1984: Triangle Arsenals, No Arsenal Stamp, S/N in the 29,000,000’s.

The "3-" before the serial number is some kind of designator that hasn't been determined yet-- possibly related manufactutring, location, or export etc.
