I have very similar to the symbol on the top. How do you think I can find the date?
I am not sure if you can get any exact age on it because of not modern. Is the makers name? J. Perrins on the side lock plate? You can narrow down age a bit. I believe it says after 1840 he actually engraved his name on the side plate. Before that it was like yours I believe on the barrel only.

Under the barrel. Not side. I think write "A.T. Perrin" not Perrins
