    I have an Iver Johnson Enforcer stainless steel with a very low serial number that is basically new in box with paperwork. How much in todays market is it worth and how many of the stainless Enforcers did they make?

    Welcome to TFF.

    Bill Goforth's book lists a Super Enforcer Model PP30 made 1978-1992, and a Universal Enforcer Model 3000 made 1986 only, but lists only blue finish for both.

    They were made in stainless. I have one.

    Yes, I know in my books that I have that it only shows blue finish but the other dealers that I spoke to said that they did make them and that mine was the first one that they accually saw. Thanks for the estimated price Bill. And still the question remains, how many of the stainless were accually produced?

    Depending on how they numbered them, you could have the first and I could have the last one.
    My bet is you have the 100th one, and I have the 285th.

    No, I believe the BS prefix indicates stainless. I used to have a blued one also.
