    I just couldn't go on by

    So it's home now. S&W M&P Model of 1905, 4th change, 38 Special, 4", all original. Shipped late 1929 or very early 1930. Stocks are original to gun and perfect to 1920's production. Chambers and bore bright and shiny, no rust anywhere. Minor use signs in all the usual places. Locks up tight and in perfect time. Glad it's mine........

    Extra nice revolver!!!! I have its older brother, a 6 inch from 1919. Same thing, I was telling the gun shop buddy how I wasn't goin bhai to buy a gun this year.......Hey where did THAT come from.....here's my card now let me hold it ...
    I know yo you will find yours to be "a keeper" too. Mine shoots WC on 3.2 bullseye to the sights at 20 yards. The sights are a challenge but part of the whole experience.
    Smooth and still tight, you've got a Jewell!

    I promise, you will NEVER regret buying that gem. Old Smiths are my weakness too. Here is a 44 HE from the 1920's that followed me home. You have got me searching for a 1905 GuesserClick image for larger version.

    You have an exquisite revolver. I am fortunate to have its longer brother, a 5" that also shipped in 1929. Mine does not look as nice as yours, though, as it spent 20+ years on the hip of a Chicago policeman. He signed and dated the inside of the grip panel. The years on the job leaves mine with well worn grips, a smooth plum brown patina on the grip frame and holster wear on the rest of the gun. The revolver locks up like new money and is glass smooth to shoot. Fortunately, the officer does not seem to have brained anyone with the gun as it is not bent. I hope you enjoy your old friend as much as I do mine.
    To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the trouble with many shooting experts is not that they're ignorant; its just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Rare to find one in that kind of shape , Did you get the original box too.
    I like 1911's and Wheel Guns , Wood Stocks and Blue Metal , Dislike Black on Black and Magazines on Rifles whats this country coming to.

    Ive had 7 or 8 revolvers follow me home this year, the last one was a colt trooper that was in mint condition other than 1911s which I have plenty of , I dont really care for all the newer simi-autos, I will buy a revolve any day of the week

    I don't blame you, I have a couple of semi-auto guns and they certainly have their place, but I'm a wheel gun guy. I guess us old guys love old guns and I believe it is because of the history involved with them. My 44 spl in the pic was carried by a deputy sheriff in deep south Alabama and it shoots better that a brand new 629 and a new 24! It has 12 notches in the stocks, probably don't want to hear it talk! Guesser, those stocks on that old Smith are a thing of beauty.
