Best Answer

Iver Johnson started making firearms in 1870 as Johnson and Bye. I don't know exactly when they made their first 38 caliber gun, but at least as early as 1893, and they continued to manufacture .38 revolvers until they closed in 1978. A great source of information on Iver Johnson Firearms is The book "Iver-Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Firearms 1871-1993" by W. Goforth
