This is a rare Iver Johnson “American Bull Dog” revolver from about 1885 to 1887. These “Bull Dogs” were made in a variety of calibers – .32, .38, and .44. The .44 is the rarest of them all.
It is in excellent condition, with over 99% original nickel plating on the frame, barrel, cylinder and grip strap. The trigger guard was probably blued at one time, but very little of this is left. The 2 1/2 inch barrel is in excellent condition, with deep rifling, a shiny bore and practically no marks or wear. The action is crisp and tight, the cylinder indexes correctly and locks up very nicely. The grips are in near-perfect condition, without cracks or missing chips, and no visible wear. Sharp markings “AMERICAN BULL DOG.” on top of the octagonal barrel which is consistent with Iver Johnson’s guns of this name.
2 1/2 inch barrel, SN 9378, rated excellent overall.
