    I just picked up an Iver Johnson revolver at a gun show that my wife fell in love with but now I am trying to identify it, mostly for knowing whether or not it can shoot .38 s&w or if it needs black powder loads. Unfortunately, the gun is in 10 day jail so I am unable to get all of the information to identify it.

    Here is what I know:

    Iver Johnson Hammerless Revolver
    Owls on grips but I do not remember the placement or direction
    .38 five shot capacity
    4 inch barrel
    6942 on the butt of the grip
    Blued finish
    No "safety" on the trigger

    I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out.

    You really need to know a couple things first. Coil or band spring for the trigger? Direction of owls on grips? Patent dates? Barrel rib markings? Letter prefix on serial number.
    I am no expert, but have learned from the experts here, that without this info, its impossible to tell, and with it, pretty much assured to know.
