Zay- that is a "top break" revolver. Do not have enough detail in the pics to tell you a lot- Possibly a Harrington & Richardson brand. What are the markings on the revolver? You know- little squiggly lines called words??? :rolleyes:

And get us some good, sharp, in focus pictures.


PS- welcome to the forum- when you get a moment, stop over by the intro thread and say howdy.

ZAY,

We will need a closer picture of the insignia at the top of the pistol grip if possible!

There should also be writing on the rib on top of the barrel. I have two similar pistols from my grandfather. They are not worth that much but certainly are as keepsakes! Mine are Iver Johnson's.
Give us a few good pictures of the design! What caliber is it labeled!

I seen an old S&W just like this one a few days ago when me and my wife went and visited her grandparents

I don't know why, but I just love top-break revolvers.

OK lets guess because we don't have enough info. If you look at the cylinder there is no positive stop for the bolt(cylinder lock). I can almost make myself see an owl's head on the grip. The two grip screws are some what uncommon. My guess is Iver Johnson. Value would be $50 to $125.

Hiwall- good eyes, and good call- when I blow the top pic up 400%, there is indeed an owl's head at the top- so at least the GRIPS are Iver Johnson! :p

Thanks for all your guys help in helping me identify the type of gun this is i really appreciate it.

Is it a five shot?

I think its an Eastern Arms Co. top break revolver made for Sears by Iver Johnson.
