Collectors gun and not recommended for shooting
Iver Johnsons "Owl Head”, .38 S&W caliber (Black Powder only) There are no markings on the frame and no serial number to research its age, best guess is 1910 and that is only a guess.
This gun is for black powder only. The flutes in the cylinder for the stop bolt are longer than the ones for smokeless and the owl is facing forward.
This was part of an estate that I acquired and have no need for it. Perhaps some one out there needs a piece of history.
$100 and I get the shipping .....
I am at the mercy of LGS's and fellow shooters on what this is. It is a novelty item, and the information provided is a best guess. What is consistent is the brand, claliber and the "don't shoot this". Even the internet has been less than helpful at times. My expertise is not in anything made by Iver Johnson.
Thanks for looking......
