Beretta 89 Gold Standard .22 Caliber Target Pistol
Beretta 89 Gold Standard .22 Caliber Target Pistol. These .22 target pistols where only in production for two years. They really never developed a following. Beretta produced this pistol to compete with the Smith & Wesson Model 41, but they never caught on. Believe it or not, they have really elevated in cost since they where discontinued. This one has a custom set of Randall Fung Grips. Since this was not one of the standard target pistols that Randall makes his grips for, he took the original factory grips and grafted a piece of walnut to them to create the custom set of grips that you see in the picture. They really keep the pistol tight and level. The 89 Gold is as new, in original box with all paper work and accessories issued with the pistol.

However, I was able to get an extremely low consecutive numbered pair. The Holster Rigs are numbered 145 and 146.. These holsters have never been removed from their shrink wrapped boxes.

Smith & Wesson Performance Center Model 952, Single Action Pistol. These pistols where produced by the Smith & Wesson's Performance Center as a tribute to the famous Smith & Wesson Model 52 Single Action, .38 Wad Cutter Target Pistol. The 952 is almost an exact duplicate of the 52, except it is a 9MM. The pistol comes with two magazines, all paper work and a deluxe Performance Center Case. Since I already own the three different variants of the Model 52 (Shown Below), it was only natural that I also own one of these Model 952's...Don't you agree?
Smith & Wesson: Model 52 .38 Wad Cutter Target Pistols (3) Different Variants
Smith & Wesson Model 52 .38 Wad Cutter Single Action Target Pistols are the best Factory Target Pistols, that were ever produced. This of course is my opinion, but I can assure you, that there are a lot of other shooters out there, that feel the same way that I do. There where three different variants produced. The Model 52 (No Number) First Variant, had a hair trigger and I mean a hair trigger. When the Second Variant was released, the Model 52-1, the trigger was re-worked with a more manageable trigger pull. The Model 52-2, was the last variant produced of the model 52's. I have the boxes, all paper work and accessories that where issued with all of these pistols. I prefer to shoot the First Variant, the 52 (No Number) with the hair trigger. It keeps you on your toes.....
Smith & Wesson: Model 19-3 .357 Magnum Tribute Pistol
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Tribute Pistol: This Model 19 was owned by my Best Friend of over 35 years. He passed away at the young age of 52 years old. The pistol was given to me by his family, to keep in my collection. I sent the pistol to S&W's Custom Shop. I told them to work thier magic and left the re-build design, totally up to them. What you see is what the custom shop did for me. They put on their new Brushed Hard Chrome Finish, they jeweled the Target Hammer and Target Trigger. Re-Blued the Target Sights. They added a red insert into front sight blade, replaced all the internal springs, reset the timing and trigger pull. Lastly, they added these magnificent pair of factory walnut grips. A true piece of Firearm History for a Tribute to a Great Friend......
