Default 1905 Target

Talk about sellers remorse. I sold this one some time ago, along with the letter and I wish I had it back. It shipped to the Philly PD. I don't remember all the details of the letter. A fine, well use revolver. I'll look to see if I have any other pics of it.

That’s a nice one, the 1905 Targets are probably my favorite prewar Smiths. Not as easy to shoot as the later K-38 Heavy barrel but much more to look at.

Yikes.
If you are going to have seller’s remorse , that’s a good one to have it over.

Beautiful revolver.

I have several 1905 Targets in various calibers. Love them all!! The only problem is they keep reproducing!

Ouch! That must hurt. 😬 Looks like a great one.
Pre-war and post-war M&Pís are a favorite of mine. 😁 I like K-frame .38s a lot. Wish I could get mine to reproduce.

Here's mine that went to Germany in May of 1913. Has German proof marks. Probably made its way back across the pond as a war souvenir.

The pre-war K-Frame target guns are some of my favorite guns. They have proportions that are ... just right.





It would be remorseful to let one of these go...Retired W4, you have my condolences for your loss.
