Iver Johnson .22 Caliber Target 8 Revolver

Barrel 6 in. octagon 8 shot, Double action Leather holster The following is stamped on the top of the barrel: I.J.A.&C.W. Fitchburg, MASS. U.S.A.

Stamped on the left side of the barrel: I.J. TARGET SEALED 8 The bottom of the trigger guard has 2373 stamped on it. Under the grip on the left side of the frame is stamped M2373

The gun was loaded with what ammo you see in the photo,1 spent cartridge, 5 lead cartridges and 2 brass hollow point cartridges. Was found in my grandma’s attic and has been there at least 40 years, waiting to be found. The mechanism is sound but the ammo is probably bad. The bluing is original and there is some rusting around the trigger guard and sporadic small rust specks in various places. Not much bluing left overall. No mechanical issues found but I have never shot this revolver. Functions well. The bore is clean, cylinder and pin are solid. Grips appear original and in excellent condition Would guess mfg.in the 40's. Octagon barrel is probably hard to find these days. Although a collector piece, if you buy this and intend to shoot with it, have the gunsmith or dealer that receives it check it out before attempting to fire. I am a novice and can make no shooting recommendation. Thanks for looking…Terry

Here is something I found on the web relating to history of the manufacturer: _____________________________________________________________________ I.J.
