Default #3 Frame Numbers

Are there any factory records indicating how many #3 frame Hammerless guns were manufactured?

Most 10 gauges are 3 frames. 12 gauge 3 frames are underrated and rare. Maybe we should do a survey or list of known 3 frame 12 gauges sort of like the 1/2 frame list

Frame sizes are only listed in the last few stock books.

I have wondered before if Parker Bros had decided to advertise frame sizes/options if today we would have seen a higher number of peculiar configurations.

I think Mills is overstating it that 3-frame 12-gauges are rare! They are certainly less common than 1-, 1 1/2- & 2-frame 12-gauges, but far from rare.
