Re: Year of Manufacture
The gun is obviously from parts of different guns. Goforth, if I read the table correctly, says that both those numbers date to 1911. U.S. Revolver production began in 1910 and continued until 1935. The actual maker was Iver Johnson, and the U.S. revolvers were first produced to use up parts left over when IJ went to their safety automatic with the transfer bar.
I don't recall seeing grips like that on IJ or US revolvers, but maybe someone else has.
