    I really don't know much about early Colts but I think you're right. It's either an '03 or is there an '08 model that looks similar?

    Time to show my ignorance. What's it chambered in?

    I think they were chambered in .32 ACP or .380, but not positive. They were a smaller caliber from most of the self defense pistols commonly used today. Someone else may chime in with more accurate information.

    Also called the Model M. The 1903 was in 32 acp and in .380 it was called the 1908 for the year it came out in that round. Colt made about 550,000 of the 32 Acp and about 135,000 of the .380 with those during WWII going to the government and a lot of these being issued to General officers of WWII in both calibers. If you have one with the paperwork linking it to a general Officer it is really a find. General Patton wore his .32 quite often late in the War.

    jimg11,
    Thanks for the info. At least I got the calibers right but I wasn't sure.

    Chambered in .32ACP or .380ACP? That has got to be the biggest handgun I have ever seen in those cartidges. Probly a lot more durable than these modern tiny guns that feel like you're going to break them if you grip it too hard. Don't believe me then try shooting an NAA Guardian. That thing is so dang tiny.
