    Hi all

    I have a 8 shot Iver Johnson Target Mod.55 and wanted
    to ask if anyone can give me any idea of manufacture date?

    The markings are as follows

    Top of frame:
    IVER JOHNSON TARGET
    MOD. 55 PAT. PEND.
    I. J. A. & C. WKS.
    FITCHBURG, MASS. U.S.A.

    Under theTriggerGguard
    C26652

    Left side Of frame Under the Pistol Grip
    C26652

    The pistol grip is a one pieace right handed type
    made of what seems to be plastic with a OWL
    FACE on the top right side and a thumb rest on
    the left side, also molded checkering.

    It's a 4 1/2 inch barrel.

    I would like to know when it was manufactured. Any help is greatly appreciated.
