I took the 1905 M & P Lend Lease revolver in .38 S & W out to the range today. I ran about 4 cylinders of Remington factory ammo through it. The target is from 15 yards offhand. I can see why the .38 S & W was not much of a manstopper. It doesn't feel like there was much power there. All in all nice shooting revolver. Action is a bit tight and the lockup is tighter than some of my newer smith's. Not bad for a gun made in 1942.
