Default 1882 T lifter questions

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and have many questions but, will start with some information and just a few questions.

I have an 1882, low/mid 25k numbered, 12g(maybe 10g but doubt it,) "T" grade, #3 frame, T lifter hammer gun with two sets of barrels(28"- weight 5, 32"- weight 6.) The serials match on the three sections. The barrels are "twist."

1. Is it common to see two sets of barrels on an order?

2. There is a second individual number on the watertable only, in the 15K range.
Could this be an order number for the gun?

3. I am planning on joining the collectors association and requesting a letter on the gun as a serial search indicates that records are available.

How long does it typically take for a response?

4. The gun was in my great grandfathers possession and was passed along
the line to me. Though has not been put to work in at least sixty years.

Will the information received possibly indicate who placed the original order?

It's wonderful to see so many beautiful SxS guns on here being put to good use in the field. I hope to have this gun checked out for safety/durability and clean her up for field use.

Thanks for any information, Bill
