Iver Johnson Firearms

Did Iver Johnson ever build pistols himself and if so how can you identify these guns?

What do you mean by building them himself? He learned to

manufacture firearms as an employee of Ethan Allen. In 1871, he and

Martin Bye, another Ethan Allen employee, formed their own company,

Johnson and Bye. In 1883 Bye sold his share to Johnson and the

company was renamed Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works.
