Thanks for the video Mike. I was unaware if the Herter's models. Who made them? Uberti made a .38 special model in the 60s - prior to GCA 68 IIRC.
I have an IAR Model 1866 Maverick in .38 Spl that was made in San Juan Capistrano, CA back in the late 60s or early 70s. From what I've read, IAR bought the tooling from Uberti so they could be made in the USA after GCA 68.
