Re: Hello Forum, Iver Johnson question
Wow this comes up all the time. If this gun was made after 1908 it will shoot the 38 S&W round. You can still get this ammo but it is very hard to find. A good gun shop can order it for you. There are others on this forum that can tell you the year from the serial number.
This gun is not a very good shooter as the trigger pull is like 10 pounds. You can buy them in good working order for $150 to $200. I know all this as I have this same gun. It was my wife's grandfathers city of Chicago issue weapon in 1922
Criminals advocate stronger gun laws to foster a safer work environment. This limits their exposure to risk.
