Colt Match Target
Rattlesnake gold inlay; ivory girps.
Colt rounded out its ensemble of automatics with the inimitable Woodsman. Many youngsters regarded the Woodsman .22 as the start of their affection for and understanding of guns and the out-of-doors. From 1915 to the mid-1970s, nearly 650,000 Woodsman .22s and related Colts were manufactured under the model names Woodsman (the original), Target, Sport, Match Target, Challenger, Huntsman and Targetsman.
