    A friend of mine has an old 22 revolver that was found among his grandfather's possessions. It is a US Revolver Co 7 shot 22, solid frame revolver. These were manufactured by Iver Johnson. The serial number is 41936. I have the date of manufacture narrowed down to the 1911-1920 time frame, does anyone have any information that would get it to the year?

    It is a neat old gun. The cylinder spins freely, but when you pull the hammer back, it locks firmly with perfect alignment on all 7 cylinder holes. The hammer will leave a deep impression on the rim.

    If anyone has any information I would appreciate it. Also the cylinder is just barely long enough to chamber 22 LR. Does anyone know if this was designed for 22 LR, or just 22 longs? I have attached some pictures.
