My grandfather gave me this gun for my birthday yesterday. It belonged to his father and looks pretty beat up. I don't think it's worth much money but the sentimental value is through the roof.
It doesn't have any markings for the brand anywhere on the gun other than what I show on top. It's a 22 and that's all I can tell. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do a web search on it. Lots of info on them.

Not a lot of info, but ....... "Arms made under the U.S. Revolver Co. name were cheaper versions of the Iver Johnson line. U.S. Revolver Co. paralleled the solid frame Iver Johnson Model 1900 and the Hinged Frame Safety Automatic models, but did not have the safety hammer feature, they also had some consequent minor changes in the lockwork and a lesser quality of finish. US revolvers were offered in .22, .32 and .38 calibers, and were sold at the same time as the main Iver Johnson line until the1940s. The pistols were marked 'U.S. Revolver Co.' on the barrel, and had 'US' molded into the grips."
There was a .38 revolver that looked exactly like that one at Ed's in Stockbridge, GA for $69 back at their New Years sale. I looked at it but it was pretty rough. Great conversation piece though. Definately has an air of nostalgia to it. Since that one is a .22 I'd shoot the heck out of it with some CeeBee longs for silent-squirell duty around the house.
