I have an 03 380 that was treated and stored badly. big chip out of left grip panel and heavily pitted outside of slide. Internals seem quite good. Would like to buy a grip panel (left) but would consider a set of both. Also (I know it's a long shot) a 380 slide. Please look in your "Box of stuff" and see if you don't have such.

DFrame, it would be an '08, not an '03 but we need to know the serial number or type to determine which style grip panel you're needing.

Serial is 37178. Colt lookup says year of manufacture is 1917. I'm a dframe revolver guy and don't know much about these pocket autos. Patent date is December 22, 1903

I have 3 original left panels in good shape with no chips or cracks. Based on the condition of your Colt I don't think it would matter much which style you use as long as it's not the 1st. If it was a very fine example then all the small details are important. Price would be $35.00 + $3.00 shipping in a padded envelope.
PM me if interested, Mike

Purchased a grip panel from oldnavypuke. thank you for all your help. This gun will be strictly a fun shooter as it's condition is deplorable.

Put up some images.
I, among others, I'm sure, am fond of model Ms in any condition.
In fact, the beaters have a lot to say about themselves.
