Thanks for the quick reply,
Well.... there is no more information other than the information I posted.
All maker information is located on top of the barrel with the serial # on the base of the grip.

Condition is excellent. Patina, no bluing. No rust. No cracks in grip. Looks like original screws in frame and grip.

Smooth action, haven't fired it, cylinder turns freely and advances as expected.

The only listing I have for a 5-Shot is the Iver Johnson "Rookie", but that is in .38 caliber. Some models do not indicate cylinder capacity, assuming they are 6-Shot. This is why I need a model number to provide you with a value.

I tried to insert a 38cal bullet, less than 1/2 of the length of the "38 special" bullet fits into the chamber. I'm not at all educated on ammunition, I assumed the length dictated a 32, I gather then it is a 38?

Entire length from barrel to back of grip is 7 1/4"
Bottom of trigger guard to flat top of barrel where site is located is 3"

I get what you are saying about more info, this is the best I can do.

Hey Wiz,
spoke to a friend and he said:
early models may not have had a model name, the pat. date is the definer. He also said it was a 32.

I thought "gun values" = knowledge of firearm history. Perhaps I am on the wrong site.

appreciate the time you gave me

I have no listing for a 5-Shot .32 caliber Iver Johnson and you have not provided sufficient information nor pictures of both sides of the firearm for a determination to be made of its value....

Iver Johnson question

Not the original poster but believe I have a similar weapon. "Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Fitchburg Mass USA" on barrel and #3393 under wood grip on left side. Any info appreciated, in decent condition except retainer holding firing pin needs to be tapped to restore threads. Had too much fun as a kid dry firing. If repaired by qualified Smith is this safe to fire with proper ammo?
Think .38 but not sure, only have photo of one side but can do more if needed.

Thanks
