    Pantera Mike, I picked up a Triple K a while back and this one runs fine. They are not the quality of MecGar repros, but most will run well. If not, Triple K will replace it without hassle.

    I had never heard of these variants, and can’t find anything about them anywhere else on the interwebs. Who can send me a link to the full story on these things? I assume they are relatively rare, and expensive? We’re they a catalog item or were they custom-built?

    rare, and expensive? Yes and Yes.

    Brunners book II page 24 and 27 & 28.

    The few we see today are all custom made.

    A past post on the subject.

    1903 Hammerless Target Barrel Mystery

    From John Brunner's book on the Pocket Hammerless
    he writes that at some point the factory experimented
    with a six inch target barrel for the 1903 hammrless
    and that little else is known.
    One unfinished factory prototype exists.
    The idea was not unique to Colt as at least one barrel maker " DU MOND "
    advertised in an issue of the NRA magazine to sell Hammerless Target barrels.
    Du Mond.jpg

    Ever seen one? Not too many people have.

    Brunner goes on to say that there are 6 known examples in 32 and 3 in .380.

    Today at the "Ohio Gun Collectors Association"( Now years ago)
    May display show there was a rare gathering of all the known
    (to me and 2 of my friends) Colt Hammerless Target barrel pistols.

    I'm sure there are more of these rare barrels, maybe you have one or know of one. (pictures please)

    Dave Smith has been chasing these barrels for many years and has been fortunate to find several,
    some with a pistol, some without. Another well known Hammerless collector friend,
    Ralf Eyster has one of these unique target barrel pistols and it was featured in his
    Hammerless display this weekend at the OGCA show. (Now many years ago)

    Dave, Ralf and myself have been plotting for sometime now to get all our Target Barrel Hammerless
    together for a few photo's for the fun of it.
    As it turns out it is probably a historical event!
    The largest gathering of Colt Hammerless Target pistols ever, LOL.

    Who said you cant have fun too. While the pictures aren't the
    best, my camera sucks about as much as my photo skills, I thought I would share them here.

    It is interesting to note that none of the barrels are exactly alike,
    certainly a indication they are all individually made and not from a cookie cutter design.
    Two of the Barrels are DU MOND marked
    the others have no maker marks.




    The last two pictures here are of the slide pulled back and
    a target barrel alone for a better view.

    The gathering of the Target Hammerless was done for our own amusement
    but after seeing how neat it was to see them together plans are a foot to
    do this again but with proper lighting and a pro photographer.



    John Brunner mentions in his book there are 3 known 380 Target Barreled Hammerless.
    The Target Barreled Hammerless in the pictures posted are all 32's. The serial number
    ranges are from a very early 1904 type one to the latest being a 1927 pistol which
    also has the longest barrel at 7 1/2 inches.
