This is an Iver Johnson .38 S&W topbreak I recently acquired. I believe it's an Iver Johnson Safety Hammerless New Model The revolver is in excellent condition - very tight, very crisp trigger and action and a great bore. The bluing is, I would say at 95% + it just presents some scratching on the cylinder. I'd say this firearm has had very few rounds through it - if any at all. The serial # on the trigger guard is 86956 There is a rollmark on the butt that says PAT. NOV 17 ... here's some pictures: This is my first and only to now Iver Johnson firearm. Comparing it with the few H&R revolvers I own I would say that the overall quality and finish here is quite a bit superior to that of H&R revolvers... seems closer to S&W quality here really Any info on date of manufacture, model, etc. would be welcomed.
