Don’t know about bushings or production dates. 
They are not consecutive serial numbers.

They were purchased on GB seperatley.

One was listed at time as unturned new.

The other listed as fired very little.

After sending off to Jim Martin for action job

I shot them twice, around 200 rounds.

For those that don't know Jim Martin is considered on of the best Colt smiths out there.  There is an acknowledgment to him in the Kuhnhausen shop manual.  His work alone adds a lot to the value of the guns to a shooter.

If the serial number is greater than 30K, ie S31xxxA it will have a remove able cylinder bushing. 
  If you shot them and cleaned them what they are asking is if the cylinder  had a remove able bushing inside the cylinder that

the  cylinder pin goes thru. Early 3rd gens had a fixed bushing like a Ruger.

Hope this helps?
