    Raskolnikov liked post by Rick On thread : Kinda cute
    Always thought these were kinda neat so when I came upon this one owned by a M-1 carbine collector I thought, why not. 1915 manufacture, not mint by any means but a little case color on trigger and...

    I’d recommend buying this book. It’s still available and fairly cheap. In the appendices are 1000’s of shipping records of the early automatics. The 1903/1908 Hammerless are not included however...

    For new models there are several possible ways to select what distributor gets them. They were trying to get them accepted and sold. We don't know if there was a huge demand from when they were...

    These weren't like the new cars' introduction to see where the tail lights were configured, or if there were fins, and the showrooms were watched avidly - these were just production items, and were...

    There is no evidence that I know of that supports your assumption that demand outstripped Colt's ability to supply the guns. Remember that they were still selling the old hammer models and there...

    No - they shipped as they were built, or from shelf stock - that era didn't have the collector mania that this one does - they were just production guns - designed for use, not for reverence.
