IVER JOHNSON ARMS Double Action SAFETY AUTOMATIC .38 Caliber Revolver C&R
Made Circa the Early 1900s in Fitchburg, Massachusetts
Here we present a C&R Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Safety Automatic Double Action Revolver in .38 S&W, made circa the turn of the century in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Iver Johnson was a U.S. firearms, bicycle, and motorcycle manufacturer from 1871 to 1993. The company shared the same name as its founder, Norwegian-born Iver Johnson (1841–1895). Iver Johnson & Martin Bye both cut their teeth with Ethan Allen, then started their own company in 1871.
The revolver was a small, sturdy, well-built self-defense weapon, ideal for potent conceal and carry in the closing decades of the tumultuous 19th Century continuing into the years leading up to the Roaring Twenties. Goforth talks about some police departments purchasing these as well as Iver Johnson bicycles for the entire force!
The overall condition is fine. Bright and reflective nickel finish. Both of the owl trademarked grips are secured firmly with expected wear. The action is strong and tight all the way around. The bore is bright throughout with sharp rifling. A great piece from Iver Johnson!
