Hello Been a few years since using this forum So Hello Anyway was wondering if I could get some help on a pistol I just purchased on Gun Broker. The following is provided: Over Johnson Safety Hammerless 32 Serial #H5805 Blued. The issue is that H prefix. The patent dates are on the left side of barrel ending Aug 25th 96 with 2 stars. Top has Over Johnson info. The left inside the grip has H5805. No spring but a solid leaf spring. double release 5 shot. Thank you

I believe it's a second model safety hammerless. Made in 1903. Difficult without pictures. I believe with the flat spring it's for back powder cartridges.

Thank You Tidewater. The other issue is it possible that sometime in its life the Gun was modified from a single latch to a Double latch? Thanks all.

I believe that by 1903 it would have come from the factory with the double latch.

Here is mine. Very similar to yours.

Thanks Yep your right looks the same. But was wondering if it was possible for the front end of the pistol to work with a single latch??? I only ask to see if it is possible it has been altered. Thanks again
