Re: Iver Johnson 22 Supershot 7-shot revolver
the 22 supershot was manufactured between 1928 and 1941. it is a very limited production revolver with only 22,650 manufactured. the introduction of the 22 supershot sealed eight model in 1932 limited the appeal of the earlier model that did not have the individual chambers recessed.
the 22 supershot was available in either a 7 shot or 9 shot versions. on the left side of the grip frame under the grips will be another serial number and letter code (usually the same as on the trigger guard) that is the main serial number.
based on the serial number on the trigger guard your 22 supershot serial number 1832 (or 1882) was manufactured in 1928. there were 3,900 of this model manufactured that year. the letter code used for the 22 supershot was "K"
because of its age and the non-recessed chambers it would be best to limit the firing of this revolver to 22 long rifle standard velocity (target loads) only. if this revolver is in good shooting condition you should not encounter any problems with standard velocity loads.
28th edition of the blue book list the 22 supershot at 100%=$200 down to 60%=$100
