    I was given an Iver Johnson Top break Revolver that appears to be in .32, small frame. Very tough shape. My friend knows I like to research stuff and track down parts, so he gave me this little puzzle. 5 shot, Coil spring, Matching serial numbers on Grip, trigger-guard, and barrel-shroud. Owls have been worn/sanded off. On the left grip frame the serial number is A 3034, the other two locations only have 3034. I am trying to find a detailed parts list or exploded diagram, disassembly advice and a source for some parts. Not trying to restore it, and I know there isn't much value. Just trying to do the genealogy. IMG_0508.jpg

    Last Patent reads SEPT. 16 04 Pats Pending. I figure it's a later model.

    Here are some previous threads from the High Road that may be of some help.

    There is more information available through Google that may be of interest to you,

    Here's source of parts but you probably need to do more research to determine the exact model of your revolver. The coil spring and the shape of the notches on the cylinder are clues. Ebay also has some parts on occasion.

    Google Iver Johnson parts diagrams. You will find many.

    My first handgun in 1960 was an Iver Johnson Trailsman 66 that went back to the factory twice and still wouldn't time correctly.
