Google US revolver company. From what I understand they were the Chevrolet to Iver Johnson's Buick. Bare bones, no transfer bar safety. Common idea for the time to not put your premium logo on a basic product so the base model does not tarnish the reputation of the higher end product. Not many folks remember that GM had their lines graduated from basic to high end Chevy, Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac. Each line had more frills than the "lesser" line. Chevy had more hosepower and less amenities (more thrills and less frills) than the others. Now GM lines compete with each other. I thinks the old business model had alot going for it.
