    Colt handguns with adjustable sights were routinely "targeted" from some time early in the 1900's to around the early 1970's. I have seen a few targets for guns with fixed sights; these were usually done on a request from a customer or as a result of repair work. I have a small data base of targets I have owned or seen. My earliest is dated 1924 for a Woodsman Target and the latest is for a Python Elite in 1997.

    Thanks for the reply. I have and have seen pre-war 1911's and detective specials with factory targets. If I gather it correctly, it was not routine to supply factory test targets on fixed sight models. It is interesting to me that there was a target for so late a gun as the 1997 Python. Thanks for your help.
