Re: Iver Johnson Revolver Questions
vegas tech 702,
the 38 caliber safety automatic revolver were the large frame and they suffered the same as the small frame, continous use of the wrong ammo. again i will state that it is attestment to the srtength of the these revolvers that after all the years on using smokeless ammo in a black powder revolver that it main problem is it shaves a little lead.
of the estimated 12 to 14 million safety automatic revolver manufactured by iver johnson's arms & cycle works between 1894 and 1941 at least 75% of them are first (1894-1896) and second models (1896-1908) and all of these were manufactured for black powder cartridge pressures.
