    S&W M&P Model of 1905 4th Change 38 Special

    UPDATED after range trip ...
    I think I really scored this time. The paper plate was the first 3 cylinders I shot at 7.5 yards and it just got better. My buddy and I went through 200 rounds and truly enjoyed every shot. Just a note: the cap nut on the cylinder release is temporary until the proper part comes in. I put the old grips on until I find the correct ones. Any comments on the fancy hammer spur? Here's a little gun porn.

    I picked up my latest addition to the family this morning and gave her a good scrubbing. Considering that it's as old as I am and came at a very reasonable price, I'm a very happy camper. Serial numbers match on butt, cylinder, under barrel, and behind the ejector star. The walnut grips were not original and will be cleaned up. The new grips are just for shooting today. I'll start shopping for original design grips soon. Bluing is approximately 80-85% intact. When I took the grips off, I found a lead half circle with a pin in each side to made it snug at the top end. There is very little movement in the cylinder and the bore looks like brand new. It has a widened (to the left side) hammer spur and a wide smooth trigger. The trigger drops at under 3# in single action. Under the face-plate was surprisingly rust free. The front sight is rather tall with a grooved ramp on the backside of the blade. Roll marks are very clear and the last patent date is Dec 29, 14. I'm heading to the range this afternoon and will post more detailed photos later. Here's one to keep you occupied for now.
