    1/2 Hammerless 32 on GB

    Here is a unique way to get a M1903 out of Canada and into the US.
    Just cut it in half.

    Actually a neat display item.

    That's actually pretty cool. A very professional job but the seller says nothing about whether Colt's did it or not. I guess it can't be lettered without a serial number.

    I believe the seller does it himself.
    I sent him a email asking for the serial number the other half had/has.

    WOW! He does an admirable job. Love to hear what you learn. Is this a fun hobby or what? HA!
    I especially like he way he displays the bullets as they encounter the lands and grooves of the barrel and the positioning of the round in the magazine. Very clever.

    I'm not crazy about somebody cutting perfectly good firearms in half. Make a drawing.

    Seller "lugercollector" specializes in Luger pistols and (more recently) in cutting pistols...(!)
    One may check his website at Lugercollector - Home
    I bought several pistols from Peter, he is a real gentleman, and at the gunclub we are friends

    You can tell from the pictures, it was in poor condition. As a cut-away, I'm not overly impressed. Everything appears to be glued in place. The best sort of cut-away for something like a firearm is one that has just enough material removed so one can see the function of the internal parts. Seeing the mechanical function is the key; that one is no better than a drawing. It is also the "wrong" half as the function of the manual safety is missed.

    I don't know if it is the same seller, but some time back, someone had a similar homemade cut-away of a 1903 Hammerless listed on Gunbroker and they had a lot of the parts "installed" wrong. I remember the main-spring was upside-down and the disconnector and sear were jumbled in some weird way.

    Yes, but doing what you're saying takes wit, that only takes a bandsaw.

    That, my friend, is a perfectly thought-out conclusion and I have to totally agree with you. But half of me goes back to a thought process of envisioning myself holding a drawing versus an actual half gun!

    I like the half gun concept; just not enough to pay the going freight!
