OF DISCHARGE, IF THE To Owl's Head trade-mark is on the stock, because the revolver hammer never touches the firing pin. This safety principle, found only in the Iver Johnson Safety Automatic Revolver, is due to the fact that the lever which transmits the blow from the hammer to the firing pin is never in position to do so except when the trigger is pulled all the way back.

It's full of firearm lore; gives important facts that every owner of
firearms should know, and goes into details and illustrates by
sectional views the peculiar construction of the Iver Johnson.
