    Black powder frame , which was the original design . In factual nomenclature I would assume it was for the propellant used .
    But after stronger strength of material , it is moot .

    To me , these days BPF means to remove the cylinder pin there is a screw in the frame to remove said pin .
    Also would come with a round , or “ bullseye “ ejector rod head .

    pre 1900 ( don’t know actual year ) this screw was replaced by a spring loaded “cross pin “ - to push and relive tension in locking notch on cylinder pin .

    i don’t think I’m the only one , but I sometimes feel I need a third hand to depress the cross pin and remove or insert cylinder pin. My hands obviously have mad lubricant on them which doesn’t help

    The BPF screw style is very easy , but better have or buy the perfect screwdriver.

    i have also heard the screws are really shitty fit , luckily I’ve had no problems .

    in addition to ease for me, I just think they ( frame) look cooler , and ultimately cleaner .

    Bottom line ........ for simple visual identification- look for naked or the cross pin “ button “ to determine .
    it is basically parallel and just behind ( towards hammer end of revolver) the cylinder pin , but a little lower.
    also check the ejector rod head for bullseye, or 1/2 moon crescent shape
