The M1891 KNIL, Dutch East Indies Revolver, was made over a 25 year period by two Dutch contractors and by Vickers. How does one differentite the 3 makers? Were they all numbered in the same serial number sequence?

The identifying mark for the specific manufacturer should be on the right side of the barrel frame.
Were they all numbered in the same serial number sequence?
I don't know, but I doubt it - it would have been difficult to coordinate over 25 years, and if the manufacturer was identifiable, it would have been unnecessary. The M1917 rifle was made by 3 manufacturers - each had it's own serial numbers.
