Hello to all, and thank you for such a great Forum! A friend recently purchased for me an Iver Johnson safety hammer third model, simply because the gun was designed by a Norwegian, and I happen to be Norwegian. The Patent dates are found on the bottom of the butt, and read June 16 96 Aug 25 96 6.04 - Pats pending. The serial number under the left grip is A54xxx. Can anyone tell me what year this gun may be? Oh, and you can screw off the cylinder. From what I have read that places it after 1913, but what do I know?
Thanks in advance!
