    I just fell into this one today. I've got an '03 off being modified, so when I saw this one, I couldn't help myself. It's a Type I, 1904 production.
    As per my usual, the pics don't do it justice. The trigger, safety, bushing plug, pins and grip screw all show lots of color left from their original
    nitre blued finish. From examining the pins, I'm not sure this gun has ever even been field stripped.

    Me like! Not bad for 105 years old!

    Those old Colts are the bomb!

    Remember, though, they aren't "drop safe"

    In the new "Combat Handguns", Mas Ayoob has a story about a writer for SWAT magazine who was killed when a 1903 Colt .32 fell out if his waistband, discharged, and hit him in the chest.

    Yep, you don't want to drop one, that's for sure. I normally don't carry with a round chambered any way. And if I was in a situation where I felt I needed to, I'd be carrying something a bit more potent any way. :)

    Very cool. I picked up a Husqvarna Model 1907 (licensed copy of the 1905) last summer.
    Neat pistols for sure.

    Nice guns not meaning to be nosey but what are you paying for these guns. I really like them but only seem to find guns that look like they wouldn't work.
