Iver Johnson Sealed 8 revolver

Model 844, 1950s production. The backs of the chambers are recessed to enclose the case heads, which isn’t a bad idea with rimfire cartridges. The front of the cylinder is extended to reduce the forcing cone flash.

Ejection of all eight rounds is simultaneous.

The front sight is adjustable for elevation.

    That is a beautiful revolver. I’d love to own it or one like it. How does it shoot and it looks as if there is some damage to the muzzle, is it just cosmetic? Or am I seeing something that isn’t there?

    Oleg, those are lovely photos.

    Mark, it shot pretty well before it went to the gunsmith — that’s my Sealed 8, photographed on its way home from Coal Creek Armory — and I’m hoping it still does.

    The outside of the barrel at the muzzle end appears to have a little wear but the crown looks as good as Iver Johnson left it. 😉

    This is one of a small collection of .22 DA revolvers that includes a little H&R 623 “pull-pin” six shooter, an I-J “Supershot” nine-shooter (in need of new springs and cylinder), a couple of High Standard “Sentinels” and the J. C. Higgins model they built for Sears. I’m still looking for a H&R 999 Sportsman and the right little Colt or S&W hasn’t come along. Yet.

    It’s visually stunning, one look and you immediately want to hold it. Thanks for sharing Oleg & Roberta!

    That’s a nice one. I went through a phase of buying every H&R 999 I could find. I should have kept a couple.

  7. Jerry says:

    Ms. Bobbie finds all the nice ones.

    Absolutely BEAUTIFUL gun. You have no idea how much I envy you folk; Iver’s seem to be rarer than hens teeth up here in Canada:(
