    Brunner has a short few paragraphs and a good illustration on the topic, pgs. 13 & 14. For general practical purposes, 1903-07, 4 feather lines. '07 had 5 lines on the feather .Some pistols in 1908 had no takedown marks. Note that the barrel was shortened to 3.75" for the type IIs, and the slide was altered accordingly, leaving scant space for marking. The mark eventually was included in an abbreviated form.
    In 1911, the abbreviated marks were replaced with a longer arrow, and the last variation was the plain looking arrow, only larger. Somewhere in those years the marks were moved to accomodate repositioning the takedown grooves/splines back in the slide.
    As always with Colt, the actual pistol might be somewhat different that the specs listed.

    I had never really studied the arrow with flights, when I got home tonight I checked my 1903 mfg in 1905 per Brunner and and does have four flights. Thanks for all of your knowledge and contribution to this site !

    Picked this up with the S&W I posted the other day. 1929 vintage, numbered slide matches frame, came with 3 magazines which I'm not really knowledgeable about.
    Came in the little brown case. I dumped it in the solvent tank overnight then scrubbed and coated with Breakfree CLP.
