Default "Club Gun" - Images: An early Model of 1905

Thumb Rest Stocks would be for a fairly large Hand size, and are for a Right Hand.

Have not cleaned or Oiled or Waxed it yet...has some minor scuffing on the Muzzle sides, otherwise the brilliant almost black Blue of the era, is quite intact.

I am of course very happy with it!

I'll be loading up some Himmelwright Wadcutters soon, and go give it a whirl.

Lost the image somehow showing the flat round light color Metal inserts inside the Stocks which register in the half-round Cut-Out of the inner Grim Frame top.

What is this style of front Sight called?

And, do we take these stocks to be something which were added some while later on?

I was given a shipping date of 12/27/04 for this Revolver.

I will be sending off for a Letter soon, and will update the Thread when it has arrived.

Hey I recognise that gun from a recent GB auction. Interesting gun but I have no idea by who or when those grips were made.

I have looked at those style grips on a past gun auction.

Being a grip enthusiast I really look over older target grips and mentally make a note of them. For some reason I decided looking at the past set they remind me of woody woodpecker.

Do you think we could see a picture of the inside of those grips? The lip by the trigger guard intrigues me

Here you go - sorry for the poor indoor night-time lighting...if a better image is needed, let me know, I can re do tomorrow when I have daylight.

So...what do we suppose may be the provenance of these Stocks?

Did Smith & Wesson produce special Stocks like these 'In House'?

Or, did they acquire and fit them as needed, from someone else?

and if so, then, form whom?

Front sight blade is a Patridge-----developed around 1900, and available on special order soon after. Surprisingly enough, it didn't become the standard hand ejector sight until 1923----thereabouts.
