Looking for info on a modified mousegun

A while ago I was reading an article on a mousegun the author had. I can't recall what it was exactly, but I think it might have been a 1903 Hammerless or a similar weapon.

Anyway the author was going on how the weapon had a bunch of fairly "modern" modifications to it, like forward cocking serrations, front strap chequering, redifined sights, and a couple of other tricks which i can't recall (which is why I want the article again :) )

The thing the author said was the gun was like this when he picked it up like 30 years ago, and the previous owner said it was like that all the years he'd had it, meaning these mods were done a little after or even during WWII.

Anyone know or have an idea about what I'm talking about?

There was a gunzine article about customized 1903-1908 Pocket Hammerless Colts a while back. I don't recall if there were any older examples covered.

What did you have in mind? You can have about anything done to one of them that can be done to any automatic... If you don't mind paying for it; there is not the selection of parts that there is for a 1911, anything special will have to be made or modified one-off.

If you are thinking of finding an early example, good luck.

Is that the one the guy picked up a a gun show from an ex-cop, busted grip from some altercation while arresting a drunk?

weisse52, yeah that sounds familiar. That might be the one I'm thinking of.
