    Iver & Johnson 32 Caliber Revolver

    New to the site, thanks in advance for any help on my question. I have come across an Iver & Johnson 32 caliber revolver and I am trying to acquire some more info. for safety sake.

    Info.
    Nickle plated
    5 shot
    free wheeling cyl. when closed
    top breaking
    owls facing barrel
    black plastic grip
    3 inch barrel
    serial number under grip S32960 2039
    number on trigger guard 32 960
    info. on butt June 16 96 Aug 25 maybe 96 or 98
    T 16 C4 Pat pending
    Barrel: Iver Johnson Arms Co.
    Fitchburg, Mass. US

    Gun is in pretty bad condition, flaking plating, corrosion in cylinder, significant powder corrosion at barrel and cylinder. I am concerned with correct ammunition to be used. Hell, it may not even be safe to fire based on condition let alone ammunition type to be used.

    Thanks for any information you can impart and again sorry if I am in the wrong forum for this post.

    you gun most likely is an iver johnson safety automatic second model. if it has 2 locking lugs at the top latch, its a pretty sure thing....

    again... in that condition NOT A SHOOTER

    Thank you both very much for your thoughts. I think it will end up on a wall for display. Thanks again.
