U.S. Revolver Co. was a brand name used by the Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Co. of Fitchburg, MA. Production lasted from 1910 to 1935. Two frame sizes ( Large & Small) were made, the larger being chambered in .38 S&W, .32 S&W Long, and .22 LR. The small frame was offered in .32 S&W and .22 Long. Barrel lengths were usually between 3 to 3 1/2 inches. Finishes were full blue or nickel plate with a blued trigger guard. Hammer and triggers were color casehardened.

As a "second line," IJ was able to use up surplus parts from earlier models, and most if not all were sold at discount through mail order houses.
