    Grail hammerless in the form of
    380 bushing pistols are the the best ever.

    8 of them survive in ei8htland,
    4 are from the same police department, Boston.

    Boston was the first Police agency to use the colt hammerless,
    buying 214 beginning in Dec of 1908,
    The Boston Metropolitan Parks Commission.

    mentallapse has the most ever
    in 380 bushing guns in his collection.
    More than me, more than you....LOL!

    Colt M1908 1849 MPC No-34, Metropolitan Parks Commission Boston, 1 of 214, 1908
    (1of4 Boston PD)


    From Sam Lisker's "Colt Autos"
    One of the earliest known police marked examples,
    shipped on late 1908/early 1909 with barrel bushing.

    This police contract is the earliest contract on record at Colt for the .380 caliber Model M pistols.
    MPC is believed to be the Metropolitan Parks Commission (Boston PD).

    There were a total of 214 pistols sn 1328 - 14644 shipped 12/5/08 - 6/4/13.

    After following this thread from post #1, I am struck by how beautiful these guns were when new, and looking at them now, recognizing what serviceable work horses they are. My one example is still going strong and does not look too bad (it is a little better than Old Rusty).
