    i have my dad's old u.s. revolver .22. the serial number is 11542. some parts have worn out and others are simply missing. i understand that these were made by iver johnson. it seems to be in pretty good shape except for various parts missing. can someone tell me how old this is and are parts available?
    thanks,

    there are two models of u.s. revolver co. handguns top break and solid frame, there is a recent post about the solid frame. which model do you have and what is the serial number found on the left side of the grip frame under the grips (remove grips to see).
