I had been looking at this 1913-vintage Smith & Wesson Model of 1905 for the past month and decided today to buy it. The finish is well worn, but according to the seller it is in excellent mechanical condition. It appears to be 100% original and still has the Smith & Wesson checkered walnut medallion grips. I paid the asking price of $395 for it. I've had better looking and more expensive Smith & Wessons over the past 45 years or so, but this one caught my eye for some reason. For the price, considering what some people are asking for firearms today, I do not think it was out of line. Any opinions would be most appreciated. Good, bad or indifferent.
