  1. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    Very recent to the Colt stable here. Just picked up a 1903 and 1908 in the last couple of months. Fell in love with them after watching Forgotten Weapons on YouTube and seeing Ian's video on the development of the 1911. I had never seen a pocket hammerless before, and I think I actually paused...

    A few of the Colts escaped today a little cleaning and lube and back they go!

    I am new to the Colt Forum-I hope I am doing this the right way. I have quite an extensive collection of newer, tactical guns that has taken most of my "gun time" up the past few years-but I have recently been focused on expanding my knowledge to the older stuff. I started with my collection...

    Hello guys, I have recently inherited a 1903 from my father, its serial number is under 1000 and is part of the first run made in 1903. I would love some information on it as far as production, distribution, history and even value. Thank you in advance

  7. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    So after shopping for replacement 1903 stocks and not loving the idea of cnc machined repos I decided to use a little dark teak I had laying around and whipped myself up a homemade pair. They won't pass for factory quality but I like 'em better than what is available and I just couldn't beat the...
  8. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    A guy on reddit just posted pictures of his great grandfather's WWI Navy issued Colt 1903 hammerless. What makes this particular gun so rare is that it was the very first 1903 to be issued to a US General Officer, a trend which would continue until the 1970's when it was eventually phased out...

    Hello all: Does anyone here have the experience to install these pre-war colt nickel plated pistol grip medallions into my Colt 1903 Mother of Pearl pistol grips? I don't feel comfortable doing the work myself. I have attached some photos of my grips and the medallions I want to put in them. If...

  11. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    After finally getting my old man to wake the heck up and consider buying a firearm before they try to take them away, We got to talking about his naval service side arm from Vietnam. I can confirm with about 90% certainty that it is a Colt Model 1903/8 in .32 ACP... even has some ammo in it...

    Hi folks, I am a new Colt collector, and I am looking to add to my a hammerless to my modest collection. My primary interest are 20th century Colt revolvers and autos. I am right outside Hartford and really enjoy the historical connection to the region and the impact that the industry...
