I was given a Iver Johnson top break revolver by my Grandfather. Top of barrel reads "Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works" 2nd line "FITCHBURG MASS. U.S.A" each line starts and ends with a star. Under left side grip stamped "77" also stamped "77" under trigger guard. It is nickel plated with pearl colored plastic? grips. Seems solid. Curious what year it was made and is it safe to shoot.

You have an Iver Johnson 3rd Model Safety Hammer Revolver that was made after 1908, and is considered a smokeless frame. Do you know what caliber it is? If not take a picture next to a ruler and we should be able to tell you based upon its size. Nobody will tell you that your revolver is safe to shoot since we cannot inspect it in person. It was built for smokeless rounds and could be fired once you have it checked out by a competent gunsmith.


Your serial number indicates a special order and may be hard to nail down the year of manufacture.
