06-09-2012, 3:01 PM

I have a Iverson Johnson .32 cal 5 shot. Owl grips, break action in great condition. After reading tons of things on the net, I can't put my finger on when it was built.

Free wheeling barrel
Leaf Spring
When I remove the grip I see a number on the left side the looks like:
P 30 between the P and the 3 it looks like a backwards C
on the bottom of the hammar gaurd is 530
The name of the company is on top but no patent dates
There are patent dates on the bottom of the grip:
PAT. June 16 96 / Aug 25 96 Patent pending (3rd line)

I see one or more of these things on some identifing sitesm however never all of them.

I would really appreciate the help in letting me know when it was made.

Thanks so much,
