    I’m so happy to find such a fine description of the Flat Top Target model. I have one with the serial no. starting at 155xxx, which belonged to my Great Grandfather. I also have the original holster which he wore. My Great Grandfather was a real cowboy working as a ranch foreman in Kansas before moving through Colorado in 1903 to the coast of California. The gun is well worn by obvious use while working on the ranch or range(no notches). It is a 38 caliber (38 long) so I presume to be black powder. Does anyone have more information about this model?
