    1908 vp

    Here's a neat little oldie. This second year 1908 Vest Pocket Hammerless isn't as nice as I'd like but it ain't bad for 110 years old. It still has a lot of the original high polished blued finish and some colors remain on the trigger and safety. Notice the 16 slide serrations with no rampant Colt on the slide.

    IMO one of the best things about it is it isn't too nice to shoot!

    Nice. I am often tempted to buy one, but it always loses out to something else. Someday.

    Rick, I do not recall seeing one with a lower SN, but I guess Sam Lisker probably has one on his web site. Thanks for posting.

    Shoot, Sam's the man when it comes to the 1908 VPs, he's got #1 and #2!

    Nice early example Rick. Now you need to find a nice early mag to put with it.

    Mmmmm......What a tasty little morsel. I always like to see old ones in good shape....sorta restores faith in what we are doin' with these things.
    I hope to see this one over on the 'Hammerless?' thread at some point.
