I guess what I meant was the SAA has a very storied history and a huge following while the 1905 sort of slips through the cracks in history. When asked about rare 45ACP pistols most will recognize the 45 Luger or even the Savage 1907 but I rarely hear mention of the true "father" of the 1911.
When I first got this 1905 I was so excited and wanted to show it to the guys that hang out at a local gun shop. Literally NO ONE knew what it was or how lucky they were to be able to fondle it. One guy even asked if it was an old "Colt Copy" of some sort. Anyway, that's all I meant. Thanks for appreciating it!
