Before realizing how old it is, I (and the guy I bought it from) fired a few rounds & it works perfectly. Other than worn plating, it is in vary good shape.
Made in 1920. All of Iver Johnson's U. S. Revolver Co. guns were made for modern smokeless powder ammo.
Correct ammo is .32 S&W (the short one, not .32 S&W Long)
