According to Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms although there are no known military contracts, these revolvers are considered secondary martial arms and may have been acquired by some states.

The Freeman is unique with its easily removed cylinder which made for easy loading & cylinder changes which brings up point that bbl, rammer, trigger guard, frame & grips are numbered "753" while cylinder & cylinder pin are numbered "752" - most likely a unit mix-up.
