Iver Johnson's >32 caliber revolver
I need help in determining the year of my Iver Johnson believed .32 caliber revolver as well as the current type and name brand ammunition I can use to fire this revolver. This small framed gun belonged to my grandfather. This is a 5 shot centerfire revolver with no exposed hammer. It is a top break nickel plated gun that has hard black grips with an Owls head at the top of each grip. Stamped on the top length portion of the barrel is as follows: Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works Fitchburg, Mass., U.S.A. Pat'd April 6, 86 Feb 15, 87 May 10, 87 Dec. 26, 93 Pat's Pending. The only serial that could be located on this revolver was on the left side of the grip frame in which the frame grips had to be removed. This Serial Number is B37314. In summary, I woud like to know the exact caliber of this relvolver which I am almost certain to be either a .32 S&W or .32 S&W Long as well as the date this gun was manufactured. Lastly, what is the value of this gun in very good condition and believed not to have ever been fired. From my limited research, I learned that a member of The Firearms Forum.Com is a Bill Goforth ( W. E. Goforth ) who is an expert on firearms manufactured by Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works and has authored a book titled "Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Firearms 1871-1993". Any help to provide accurate information on this gun and the current ammunition I can use to fire this revolver will be greatly appreciated.
