Date of manufacture of Iver Johnson .38 revolver.
I have a .38 caliber 5-shot Iver Johnson revolver (Stamped “Iver Johnson’s Arms & Cycle Works Fitchburg, Mass. U.S.A.”). S/N D87602. No date of manufacture but patent date is November 17, 1908 which makes it a “third model” manufactured between 1913 and 1941. The barrel length (from end of muzzle to front of cylinder) is 3 3/4". No front sight. This pistol belonged to my grandfather and I would like to know the date of manufacture to have an idea of when he might have purchased it. Thanks Val.
