    Colt 1908 in case

    I just got the case I ordered from Bills-cases for my 1908 Colt hammerless made in 1928 sn.101212 [I'm sure it prob. belonged to big Al] . the case is very well made, Bill is a true craftsman.
    I got tired of going to the safe to look at my fav, hand gun so I decided to put it in a wooden case and leave it at my computer desk where I can handle it while doing my Al Capone impression's . I keep a few of my cigars on top of the box where it looks like a cigar box. [I don't keep the bullets in the box, and all my kids are gone].
    Does anyone know if the 1-17 on the right bottom of the ammo. box is the date of mnf, or does it have some other meaning ? I got the ammo. box off of ebay and thought it would look good in the case. Thanks for looking, and would like to see your case guns.

    That's really nice, I might have to get one of those for my nice barrel bushing .380, for which I have a box of ammo and an extra magazine.

    I'd like one for my double barrel set target rifle, if he does them.

    Nice idea!
    I have a vintage box that looks very similar.
    Just needs the molded red interior.
    Project!

    I made the custom interiors for two cases. The basic boxes with no interiors came from Hampels Woodland products. I asked for some extra pieces of divider material to be cut up and used for the partitions. The Colt Service Model .22 Conversion Kit is circa 1947-48 and goes with my 1948 Super .38. I do have the original Colt cardboard box that it came in too. The Astra 4000 Falcon Tri-Caliber Kit is pretty scarce, Antaris says fewer than 200 sets were manufactured in 1957-58

    Walter,
    Looks like your pretty good with gun cases, they look very nice. I tried to make one a few months ago, I just don't have the patience or the skill, ended up throwing it in the trash, it was a complete mess.

    For a while in the early 1900s Winchester dated their ammo boxes in the lower right corner. You are correct, January, 1917.
