    Interesting. The serial number on the gun appears to be 91737. 1892 ship dates start at 85400 and go to 89000. I have seen out of sequence serial number shipments made on frames that were numbered and in stock for a while, but I have never seen one shipped 2,737 numbers prior to the year the serial number would have been applied. According to it's serial number it should have been shipped in 1893.

    Go figure. I had assumed 1893 from the serial number lists also.
    Always interested in adding nice, original or interesting pre 1940 single actions to my private collection. Contact me via PM.
