    I think it's a 32 cal, 5 shot, 3" barrel, top break with a hammer, owl is looking down at the trigger. On the top of the barrel it IVER JOHNSONS ARMS & CYCLE WORKS, FITCHBURG, MASS. USA.
    On the bottom of the grip PAT'D APR.6.86, FEB.15.87, MAY 10.87, MAR.13.88, AUG.25.96, PAT'S PENDING
    Serial number behind grip K.31119 It also has the serial number, without the "K" below the trigger. Anyone know the Type and Date it is?
    Thank you for your time.

    On my way out in just a minute but someone will be along shortly to give you additional information, but at a glance I can tell you it's a 2nd model small frame .32 calber made pre 1909.

    The K prefix was used only in 1904.

    Made for black powder ammo, and should not be used with modern smokeless powder rounds.
