Cylinder pin screw

Some Peacemakers have a screw in the front of the frame to retain the cylinder pin. What dates were these used?

Flayderman's guide says that the screw was used from the first one until serial number 144,000 or so.
But there's no specific dates.
Probably sometime in the late 1880s, since number 180,000 was made in October, 1898, according to the same guide book.

144,000 was the first one off the line in 1892.
