Great lookin' guns! What's the difference between the two larger guns? The one with the white grips appears to have a shorter grip length than the other. What are the model numbers and years of manufacture? Beautiful guns. I'm envious.

Sorry it took so long to reply.

The top pistol is a Colt Model 1908 Pocket, Type III. Caliber is .380 ACP, 3-3/4-inch barrel, made in 1925.

The middle one is a Colt Model 1903 Hammerless. Caliber is .32 ACP, 4-inch barrel, made in 1930.

Both of those are very similar except for caliber.

The bottom one is a Colt Model 1908 Hammerless, also known as the "Vest Pocket". Caliber is .25 ACP, 2-inch barrel, made in 1911.

Any difference in the grips is probably due to the angle the camera was at when I took the photo. The fake ivory grips are after-market by Ajax. The other grips are original.

I think they're pretty cool, too. 8)
