I used to shoot bullseye back in the 60s and 70s. I am not that old by the way. I was in prep school and then college back then. Anyway I had a Gold Cup for 45, a S&W 52, and a S&W 41. As much as I love my Gold Cups, and I sort of collect them, I wish I had had a 945 back then. Mine was one of the first ones so I think a dash nothing. The Aluminum cases they came in back then were a nice touch.
By the way if anyone has an 845, then post a picture of one of those.
My dad and I each have early production full size 945 guns. (they made compact and sub compact versions).
With good ammo they shoot like lasers, zero malfunctions, trigger pulls as good as nighthawk or WC.
According to the Standard catalog of S&W production stopped in 2005 . I have a two-tone 945-1 but mine has black stocks and was distributed by RSR instead of Camfour . The front sight appears to be different also . Wilson Combat on mine . Bo-Mar on the others ?
I am curious as to what this two-tone is ? Anybody know ? Bought it off of GB about 2? years back and just wanted a target pistol . Surely this is a different run than the one's that Bob and LDL have .
