I bought this gun several weeks ago from fellow member ironman40, who buy the way is a good man to deal with. I bought it because I reload 32/20 and had sold another 1905 that I had, so I needed an upgrade replacement. I planned on putting a Wondersite on it, like I did the other one I had.
I took it out back and fired six rounds just to see how the old gal performed. POA/POI at 12 yards off hand, in SA bullseye stance, using my load of 5grs of Unique under a 100gr cast bullet. Heck, I surprised myself!
I think I'll just slip a K frame grip adapter on there and leave it alone.

Nice gun. My goal is to find one , Target model. I want to find it
personally where it lives. I have seen a few at shows but they were not "lost" The owners were very aware of them and had
prices on them to avoid loss.

Gorgeous gun there and quite accurate as seen on targets too. They are tough to find in nice shape that are still reasonably priced. My favorite style service stocks you have on gun also. Enjoy

Back in the late 1990's, I ran across a target model in a shop that was tight but had been cold blued. It was actually affordable for the time, but I foolishly passed thinking I would find a nicer one.
