    Hello all
    I’m a novice that just inherited my grandfather’s s&w. I believe it is a s&w 1905 model hand eject .32 - nickel plate and pearl stocks (plastic??)

    Serial numbers on butt and barrel match 22841

    What resources can I utilize to learn more about this gun.

    If the grips are heavy, they're real MOP.

    This is a 1903. A 1905 .32 would be a .32-20 (.32 WCF). Good condition MOP's are worth a pretty penny.

    To expand on what Waidmann said...

    Yours is perhaps better known as the .32 Hand Ejector. It uses the smaller I-frame, which was intended for the .32. The I-frame eventually evolved into the J-frame.

    The 1905 uses the larger K-frame, intended for the .38.
