    I have recently aquired my grandfathers Iver Johnson 22 supershot. I have done alittle searching online for information on this revolver but haven't had much luck. Can anyone tell me more about this gun.

    It is a nine shot revolver serial number K22028. The blueing is worn around the barrel and the action isnt reliable. It will cycle several times and then will get stuck. I'm looking for any general information about the firearm, how much it may be worth (although I don't really care much about that), and where/how I may be able to get the action working properly.

    Serial numbers K21701-K22650 were made 1941, the last year made, so yours was one of the latest.

    It sounds like it might just be sticky from old dried grease or dirt, and I'd try spraying the works with Kroil or similar first. If not, then take it to a qualified gunsmith.
