    Looking at the proof mark in your last pic, it is the number 32. Is the other pistol marked with the same number?

    Hi Phil,

    i wrote on post #4 this:
    although it looks like they are numbered 31 & 32, in fact they are not.
    What looks like a 3 is a proofing firing mark, the 1 and 2 mean they are numbers 1 & 2 of this set and belong together.
    Each barrel was tested before buiding the gun ( saved in a lot of cases a lot of work when the barrel didnt stand the test.
    After that the pistol had a total firing test and passing it would result in a proofing stamp on the chamber/pistol.
    That why the "3" is on boths guns on the barrel and on the gun itself.

    Regards,
    Ger
