Default S&W Model of 1905 3rd change and Savage 1907 Package Deal

Just as the title says I am picking these two up tomorrow had to buy both for $350 as a package deal. If I am reading the catalog right it is a Model 1905 3rd change. The Savage is a interesting gun on its own needs some new grips as the ones on it don't appear original.

155846 would probably have shipped around 1910 and it would be a third change Model of 1902, as it has the rounded butt. Grips are from the 1930s, originally it probably had black hard rubber grips. If the Savage is shootable, you did OK. It will make a good project gun. I don't believe I have ever seen a plated Savage, so I'd guess yours has aftermarket plating. You can find replica grips for it.

Great snag for $350. Those grips on the M&P look great. The Savage.
Know nothing about. Great trade fodder.

The 1907 Savage is a nice find. They did produce them in nickel although not many. They make great shooters. Yours still has the loaded chamber indicator still attached to the barrel which is usually missing. If you are going to shoot it, keep an eye on the front sight. They sometimes come loose and disappear. Nice package!

I saw the title and thought it was in the "for sale" section, dag nab it!

You can find pretty decent repro grips for the Savage. They had a tendency to crack.

Default 1905 3rd Change

I have a nickle model 1905 3rd chg. numbered 154720. Lettered by Roy Jinks to have been manufactured 18 July 1910 and was shipped to a gun distributor in Philadelphia.
I enjoy shooting mine; very smooth trigger. On the seven yard range I can shoot decent groups as long as I see a lot of the front sight. The old timer doesn't fare so well against the model 14 or other 6" K frames on the 15 yard range.
I hope you enjoy your new, but old piece.

I picked up the guns the other day. The grips that are on the Savage are antler of some kind they weren't finished and still rough. I finished them out and I think I will leave them on it (pictures soon) .The Smith needed attention as lockup was very loose. I had a bolt in my parts stash with a little fitting cured the problem. The serial number on the grips is 56842 which seems odd to me since the revolver serial is 155846 . I would have thought the grips would have a higher number since they are newer than the gun or so I thought.

As DWalt stated, those stocks are from the 1930s. So they are newer than the gun - by more than 20 years. I can't explain the number, but someone here might have a guess about it.

I think those stocks could be from the teens?? I do not see many gold medallion walnut round-butt service stocks from that era, but have a couple sets. If you enhance the OPs second image, you can see what looks like a gold medallion, but maybe the flash from the camera changed the medallion color some. Pictures below are, first - from the OPs picture; second, from a set of walnuts that DWFAN restored for me; and the third adding a set with larger checkering and lost medallions. The only difference is that the top of the stocks are rounded on the OPs, looking like later ones, but the large gold looking medallion throws me off???? Maybe some improved images could help.

The Savage 1907 is one of my favorite little shooters, accurate in spite of their trigger pull, and very compact for the time period.


They also have a cool Art Deco look to them, and they are one of the earliest examples of a double stack magazine I am aware of.

Love your third change. I've got one from 1914 with matching stocks.

The grips in question do indeed have silver/nickle plated medallions. One of which has most of the plating worn off. they are what I would call small ones without the raised edge if that makes sense. I tried taking better pictures but my cell phone isn't up to the task and my digital camera died. I shot the Savage today had some feeding issues until I got to the last 5 rounds in the mag not sure what is going on there but I havent field stripped it yet. It is a very accurate gun I won't be shooting it much anyway so no big deal.
