About the Manufacturer:

Known as Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works in its early years, the company was formed by Norwegian born gunsmith Iver Johnson in 1871, initially established in Worcester, Massachusetts. As the name implies, the company made both firearms and bicycles (later motorcycles). Around World War I the company began divesting itself from non-firearms concerns in the face of growing firearms demand. The company eventually dropped "Cycle Works" from its title when that part of the business was finally shut down. The business was successful through World War II. But, after World War II the company's introduction of new firearms slowed. In 1975 the name changed to Iver Johnson's Arms, Inc., and two years later, company facilities were moved to Middlesex, New Jersey. In 1982, production was moved again to Jacksonville, Arkansas under the trade name Iver Johnson Arms, Inc. Without the development of newer, more modern firearms designs the company's sales dropped significantly over the years and its resources were eventually sold off to American Military Arms Corporation in 1993.
