Have recently come into possession of a .38 caliber colt semi-automatic pistol. Looks like a Model 1902, but the model is not stamped on gun. Attached are photos. Trying to get confirmation as to exact model of this gun.

In addition, the only ammunition I have found to be available is .38 super or .38 super +P. Is it safe to shoot the higher pressure rounds available today in this gun, or is this gun now a museum piece?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

You can find the correct .38 Auto ammunition if you look around. As previously said...do not use .38 Super!

Only ever run .38 auto., never super.38 in a pocket hammer. The relative scarcity of 'em is, in part, anyway, attributable to folks using high pressure rounds in 'em. Let's just say, a lot of 'em have been detonated by incorrect ammo.
It redefines the term 'hand grenade'.
