Iver Johnson Revolver 32 cal
I'm new to the forum and have been impressed with the knowledge base of the members. I have an Iver Johnson Revolver from my late father. The markings on the 3" barrel are across the top:
IVER JOHNSON ARMS & CYCLE WORKS, FITCHBURG, MASS U.S.A.
PAT June 16 96. Aug XX?? Sept 16 04 PAT'S PExxxx
Serial number S66145
Chrome or nickel finish but not trigger guard. Curved spring in handle ( not coil spring)
32 cal short 5 shot, no trigger safety, cylinder rotates in normal state
I was expecting to shoot it as I first purchased 32 cal long( too long) then bought 32 short. They fit but after reading this forum, maybe I'll chuck the whole batch.
Can anyone tell me if it was built for old or new ammo and when it was made?
thanks in advance.
