    Yeah, Gargo--, all it needs is a bit of oil & a wax-job. LOL Maybe u should put it back before somebody trips in that hole behind the barn & hurts themselves.
    Glad you posted this. We can have fun with this. Maybe it was a murder weapon! have you had ballistics done? Do U have a permit to carry? Is it pre-1898? Can't be too careful these days in your country.

    This relic is from the US Revolver Company, a name under which the Iver Johnson company sold an economy line of revolvers between the early 1910s through mid 1930s.

    I wiped all the dried blood off of it before I posted it,don't want to incriminate CW!!!!!!!!!!
  7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
    Yeah, I think you are right, it is an Iver. I was having trouble identifying it as it certainly wasn't a colt Walker!
    Did you smooth-over that hole?
  8. gargoylecollector gargoylecollector, 2 years ago
    Thanks bellin,lowspeed,packrat,blunderbuss,chrisnp,and manikin!Thanks for the info also,no I didn't fill the hole I'm sure there's an old blunderbuss down below it!
