Inerested in any info on this pistol. I received it from my great grandfather. Was told it was rare as it has a "sub-trigger" and is hammerless.

If it was in the box and in as-new condition, it may sell for as much as $250 on a very good day. The nickel plated ones get the higher prices, usually. In this condition, it's worth $75-$100, and I'm being generous. I have a few of them (Ivers, H&Rs, Hopkins & Allen, etc,) and they're all worth about the same. They aren't worth much because they made so many of them. They're good, reliable little shooters, btw.

For an idea, the H&R below is my ex-girlfriend's "get off me!" It was about $120 a couple of years back on Gunbroker.
Note: She got her permit and is never without it.

Thanks much. Do you know anything about the sub trigger? It was in an article in "Gun" in 1971 that my father gave me.

My grandfather carried an Iver Johnson 38 S&W hammerless in the Alaskan Gold rush.

We still have it.

10 years ago it was worth $50.

Now I estimate the worth at $110.

It is not for sale.


There was a magazine article saying the most popular question they get is about Grandpa's old break top and how much is it worth?

Well, my first answer was wrong. So I deleted it.

It is a Second Model Safety Hammerless model built from 1897 to 1908.

The Doc is out now. :cool:
