1926 The first course of action to discern the value of a gun is to identify the make, model, manufacturing date, and variation. The book "Iver-Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Firearms 1871-1993" by W. Goforth may help accomplish this. Then it's a simple matter of looking your gun up in one of the many firearm value books, such as the Blue Book of Gun Values, or the Standard Catalog of Firearms.

A short-barreled version of the Safety Hammerless revolver manufactured from 1968 to 1975. The Safety HAMMER Revolver.

The only "safety" is you. You can test for "push off" by cocking the revolver and attempting to "push" the hammer forward with your thumb. This will let you know if there is unacceptable part wear.

It's your control of your trigger finger. There is no safety device on a Rohm revolver.

This was probably either a Safety Hammer Model or Safety Hammerless Model made from 1892 to 1950. In the 2004 Blue Book the Hammerless was worth $60 in 60% condition and $125 in 100% condition and the Safety Hammer model was worth $40 and $100 respectively.

If you have no idea what you are doing find someone else who does. First, point the gun in a safe direction. Make sure it is not pointed at any body part of yours or anyone else. Ground is best. If there is enough room between hammer and the frame place a finger of your off hand on the hammer (NOT on the frame, a falling hammer might hurt and an older one with a firing pin on it will draw blood). Hold the hammer with your thumb and pull the trigger, then let the hammer down slowly. Be careful, on some older revolvers there is no safety mechanism that prevents a shot when the trigger is not all the way back and a falling hammer will make it fire. Don't decock a revolver when your fingers are wet or greasy.

It's a "Safety Automatic" revolver, but would need to know the exact markings including patent dates to determine which model and year of manufacture. The C prefix was used for several years and the numbers duplicated with Second Models and Third Models.

Most likely made in the late 1890's-early 1900's time frame. Iver Johnson made one with a manual safety on the frame. Meridian and Harrington & Richardson made them without the manual safety. The H&R has a hammer mounted firing pin. The Meridian has a frame mounted firing pin. Spain and Belgium also made them. Value seldon exceeds the 50-100 range.

Watch your fingers, and dont have your face and the hammer in a direct line. Don't use a 1 lb. hammer for a 10 lb. job.(claw hammer as opposed to sledge hammer)

for making maximum load on hammer head & produce maximum impact also for safety & comfortability...

Please clarify your questionIs there a question here? Do you think you have the actual revolver used? Are you offering it for sale? The actual revolver used is in a museum in Buffalo, New York where the assasination happened. If you search Mckinley's assasination you'll find articles about it which do include a picture of the revolver, an Iver Johnson 32 cal.

When the safety is off and the trigger is depressed.

The "Pink Lady" model is a double action revolver. They do not have, nor do they need a safety. The safety ia in the long, relatively heavy, trigger pull.

the model 1894 winchesters of that time did not have what you would consider a mechanical safety,( a button or wing type safety) there safety was a half cock,that is once a round was levered into the breech and the hammer was all the way back you had to safely hold on to the hammer with your finger hand squeeze the trigger to ease the hammer forward then thumb the hammer back until it clicked in the half cock position.
