What years did Colt use the grips shown in the pictures? This is my oldest Colt Hammerless and I am not as familiar with this style of grips. Thanks for your help?

I do notknow the years but the finish looks great on that thing. Beautiful fire blue!


Here are some pictures of the gun. Sorry for the crappy cellphone pictures. I am guessing a 1911 year of manufacture. If the experts would chime in with information I would appreciate it.

That general style (Colt banner with straight borders and rampant colt) was used 1911-1924. The stylized "C" around the rampant colt was used during part of that period.
1911 to 1913. They are correct for your M1908 made in 1911.

Thanks so much! For some reason, I cannot walk away from the 1908s.

This is probably my favorite one. It shipped in 1924.

More a question than a statement, but the grips/stocks on the OP pistol appear dull and not sharp enough for Colt grips. This is the same type on a 1913 manufactured CPH .32., which appear to have sharper detail, and more of a shine.

JohnnyP I agree. The OP grips don't look right to me. The texture behind the colt letters is the telltale on these for me.
