Iver Johnson information request
I am hoping that b.gofirth can give me some information on the gun I recently acquired.
I believe it is an Iver Johnson safety hammer .32 revolver S&W but I could be wrong. Here is the information I have, and some pictures. I see a lot of reference to the owl in Iver Johnson guns, but my gun has a monogram, not an owl. An explanation of that would also be appreciated.
.32 S&W bullets
barrel - length 3inch
5 shot cylinder
top of barrel says, "new england fire arms co. - worcester, mass."
on bottom of grip - "9 310"
on front side of handle - "2"
on cylinder "84 384"
on release "3834"
serial number located inside grip "33 84"
I included pictures of : gun opened, bottom of grip, front side of grip, and the numbers on cylinder and release (numbers on cylinder are very tiny)
The gun itself seems to be in great condition except for a little rusting above the grip. The cylinders and barrel look exceptionally clean. I am curious if it is safe to shoot.
Please let me know if you need any further information or pictures.
Thanks in advance!!
