There really is no way to know. Frame sizes were only rarely mentioned in the records

Many #4 frame hammer guns of higher grades were made for shooters who shot for Parker Brothers in competitive events. Anyone who finds themselves in possession of such guns should request a PGCA letter to find if there is a famous name associated with the gun.

As mills said, there is absolutely no way of knowing how many guns in a given frame size were made.

I have a B 10 4 frame without the dolls head extension. It was purchased by George Dugan, an operations superintendent for the Santa Fe Railroad in 1882. It has 30" barrels with reversed F/M chokes. It is the only 4 frame I have seen in person.

Pictures of the 4 frame. The stock has skeletal buttplate. My son has my camera and I don't have stock pictures.
