If the gun is chambered in .32ACP, it is a Model 1903, not a Model 1908. Since these guns were often shot with corrosive ammunition, which destroyed barrels if improperly cleaned, there are aftermarket barrels made for them. Someone here probably knows a source better than the always unreliable Gun Parts Corporation or Jack First, but you might check there. An original barrel might be found, but it would be difficult and probably expensive to the tune of a few hundred dollars.
The treatment of this pistols illustrates the irrational gun phobia that some have. Just removing the barrel and hiding it would have accomplished the same "safety" result. Sad.
