Iver Johnson Armsworth Model 855 Revolver 6 Inch Blue VG Rare Variant Single Action Mfg. 1955-57  Guns > Pistols > Iver Johnson Pistols
Description: Fjiestad has only scanty description in his listing, but this Armsworth Model 855 Iver Johnson target revolver is not only striking and unique; its production spanned only 1955 until 1957. It not only has adjustable sights; its finger rest is adjustable. This Iver Johnson’s principal detractions are some storage affectation of the finish. The cylinder has about 30 percent light spotty brown patina that is not conspicuous; included, however, on one chamber area’s exterior is a moderate area of white, which the photo should show. There is a bit of white showing on the muzzle sides, in addition to sparse brown spots here and there on the finish. The unblued sides of the hammer show about 15 to 20 percent spottiness. None of this, however, amounts to anything close to pitting, hence we designate Very Good, and estimate that 80 percent or so of the original finish remains. The grips are the original old vintage style walnut, with about 20 percent wear indications on their upper and lower portions, mostly on the left side. Bore and cylinder chambers are very bright and clean, as the photos show. Note also the excellent remaining casehardening on the rotation teeth at the center of the ejector. The teeth edges show only moderate wear. This revolver came from an estate in nearby Hardin County, Tennessee, and we do not believe it has been fired very much. Note the very unusual configuration of the trigger. This is factory, and it was widened so that the revolver would not go into double action mode. Note, too, the striking similarity between these and the highly prized H & R 999 Sportsmen revolvers. Own this fine, unusual Iver Johnson 855 Single Action for only $ 289.95
