    First. you need to do a little work. Use the search forum and research Iver Johnson Handguns. See if you have provided enough information for the real expert Mr Goforth to properly identify it. By the way Mr. Goforth has his own life plus he is good enough to answer questions on three forums. Lets not rush him OK, if you do he might tell you where to put your Iver Johnson revolver:)
