Re: Help Iver Johnsons model??
Rare or scarce does not always mean gold. Your revolver was undoubtedly among the last made by Iver Johnson before they closed the doors and turned off the lights and shortcuts were made to finish up all leftover and spare parts. It is not hard to track, the information is available in Mr. Goforths book and on line. I know you were hyped up to believe you had a very rare photo type revolver, but alas it is not to be. In fact you have a factory parts gun. Iver Johnson was not the only manufactured to follow this practice of using leftover or mixed parts. Colt collectors sometime go nuts because Colt never wasted left over parts and instead installed them on different series of guns. So, enjoy what you have and don't fret over what you don't have. Sorry about that.
