The production run for this revolver was 1897 through 1941. 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 on into the years leading up to the Roaring Twenties.
