Re: ID help
The numbers on those guns are usually assembly numbers. The guns were fitted together, the parts numbered, and then the guns taken apart for final finishing. The numbers, called assembly numbers or lot numbers, were used to make sure the fitted parts got back together again. The "1" is simply a number; it does not indicate the first of anything except that batch and adds no value. Those guns have very little value, usually under $75 unless in like new condition. I saw an engraved one with an ivory grip with a price tag of $200 and no takers.
