    Iver Johnson purchased the manufacturing tooling and rights to produce the FI Model D calling their product ďPonyĒ and made cost cutting modifications as production progressed. I J had several serial ranges most of which are confusing, the US prefix I believe was one of the earlier prefixes, II have one with UJ which may be the first of the prefixes finally settling on IJ for the major production run ( not including the US BP commemorative). Frames are of such a steel alloy that they often begin to plumb with age. I have around twenty of the FI ó-IJ pistols from one of the first FI (scrubbed Colt slide) to first IJ, about 40,000 FIís were made and IJís were run several different times and locations.
