Re: Ivers Johnson 32cal. pistol 1906
ok, this is a whole new ball game. first there was no patent issued to iver johnson on aug. 26, 1906, there was one dated aug.25 1896 and it is the date of the patent for the hammer the hammer action. this would make this revolver a very early second model (1896-1907) serial number on butt with no letter code indicates manufacture in 1896/1897. all iver johnson's arms & cycle works second models were manufactured for black powder cartridge pressures and are not suitable for modern ammo. if this revolver has a side latch release lever on the left side of the barrel stop strap it could be a late production first model manufactured late in 1896.
