I just aquired a S&W new model 3 that was shipped to W.F. Sheard in Tacoma, Washington. Sheard, was the sight inventor, he also had a shop in Livingston Montana. W. F. Sheard was a professional shooter, trophy hunter, guide, outfitter and fur dealer. The gun I picked up was shipped in 1896 and is in 44 Russian caliber. I was wondering how many Colt and Smith & Wesson hand guns were shipped to him. I know many Winchesters went through his doors and he stamped them. Can't find as much info on the handguns other than he made the gold bead target sights for S&W.

I have the letter from Colt that says my 1912 Colt Commercial 45 first year issue was shipped to him. The front sight on it looks to be his but i'm still doing the research on it.
