    Why does a Model 905 cost so much more than a Model 605 ?

    I guess the chambers in the cylinder are tapered ( as opposed to straight walled ) , but why the extra cost ?

    Probably because the 905 hasn't been made in a few years, and are getting to be as rare as hens teeth in availability. You can find a 605 anywhere.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."
