    I have inherited several guns. I have no idea what these two pistols are. THey must be a pair or of the same manufactuer. One is a .38 s&w caliber, the other a .22 cal.. They both have black plastic grips with on Owl Logo at the top on each side. The .38 has a top break cylinder. Got to run but will post up pics soon!

    Thanks!

    The "Owl Head" was a logo for Iver Johnson. That about completes my knowledge of Iver pistols :), but Mr. GoForth will probably be along shortly to help you out. He is the "go to" guy for IJ.
