How is the bore?
Had an opportunity to take my Christmas gift to the range today.
What a blast (literally)! My first experience with a 107 year old gun and it was awesome. Shot well considering the little fixed sights and the gun’s age. Here’s an example, 25 yards, bench supported:
I had one complete flier (bottom left corner). So, can’t wait for the next range visit! Jack
What ammo did you use?
Of all the early Colt "hammer" self-loaders I like the 1903 pocket hammer the best, (though a good stiff pocket would be required). Conjuring up a vision of a day out in a Velie or Jefferies open touring car on a rough dirt road with a (then new) Colt pocket hammer .38 "riding shotgun" slipped into a canvas duster pocket.
Yes I like the Pocket Hammer Colt's we have two. The first one we bought had issues so we traded up for the two we now have at a LGS, both have good bores, one has a really good bore. We also got to look at a Military Model as well as a Sporting Model they had.
