Re: Earliest No. 00?
I don't keep track of the hammerless guns, but in my records the earliest hammer gun without the joint check is from 1899 serial number 78619. Serial number 78429 also from 1899 still has the joint check.
I would think that when they did away with the joint check it would be for both frames.
