A typical “suicide special” from the late 1880’s or early ’90’s, this small pocket revolver was made by Iver Johnson’s Arms & Cycle Works of Fitchburg Mass. It has about 80% original nickel with a bit of flaking and patches of corrosion. The cylinder was originally blued, and is now covered in a pleasing brown patina. The action is crisp and the cylinder indexes and locks correctly. The barrel is clean and the rifling is good for what it is. These cheap little guns were not heavily rifled. The grips are fine, with a small repair to the right side near the top. .32 short rim fire, 5-shot cylinder, 2 1/2 inch barrel. SN 105, rated very good overall.
