Here's a couple of M&Ps from the teens and twenties. I was taking some updated photos today, making certain the serial numbers were clearly depicted. The round butt gun Serial No. 296xxx is likely from 1917. The square butt Serial No. 506xxx is circa 1926. I've not taken the opportunity to letter them yet so if anyone can pinpoint manufacture dates, please chime in.

Nice indeed. Guessing the pat'd date info is on the top of the barrels?
I like the look of the round butt stocks. The medalions should have been in all the stocks {IMO}

Great revolvers they appear to be in great shape.
How do they shoot? I have some M&P's and they are all good shooters.

They both shoot really well and to point of aim with 158 grain SWC or round nose ammo hand loaded to 800-850 fps. They both are tight and have sparkling bores. They won't much lead with quality bullets and lube.

The round butt revolver has the early sights, a tiny U-notch and a thin blade. Makes sighting a chore in less than ideal lighting conditions. However on a good day, with my spectacles on, it'll keep 'em in there.

Service sights or targets, those old M&P's are fine, accurate guns!
