    I ain't ei8ht, but.......
    The magazine safety depressor, aka, Tansley device was added in 1926, according to Brunner.
    He further states that the exact date of the first pistol so equipped is rather nebulous,~05-27-1926, but the serial on the 1903 was #468097 and the 1908 was #92894.
    Several other modifications were made to accommodate the new setup.

    Now I feel like I poached your post.
    Sorry.
    I won't lose any sleep over it if you won't.

    Years ago, I was handling an attack line advancing on a cellar fire. We were a little late getting in position, it was hot, and the fire was rippin'. The crew behind was on the stairs when I opened up at the seat of the fire. The actual extinguishment could not be delayed any longer than the time it took to get close enough to deal with it. As a result, the whole crew got 'poached', and were not particularly happy. No injuries, but a lot of fear & discomfort. Of course, a little fear is a good thing, and sometimes a lot of fear is even better.

    Another time, my EMS crew and fire equipment were assigned to a major multiple casualty fuel tank explosion.
    An EMS crew from out of town was returning to the highway to go home when the blast occurred almost exactly at their location. They took the assignment and 'poached' a victim rather than take command and start sorting 'em out, resulting in delayed efficient application of available resources. (read: cluster-bleep or bleep-show)

    These scenarios represent two common uses of the infinitive 'to poach'.

    M1903 422707 Target Pistol with 6 inch Du Mond Barrel 1922

    This Target Pistol was found in a small Chicago Area Gun store a few years ago.
    Although I have found another Du Mond Marked Barrel,
    I have not seen another Pistol like this one.
    The Gun Store said it was just in from a local estate headed to GB.
