Have not seen to many model M's lately.
I'm sure you have seen most of mine,
could you share a few pictures of yours?:p

A few from my accumulation
to get the thread started.

I had never been very interested in the early Colt pistols until a few years ago when I read a biography of John Browning. That inspired me to ad a few more of his designs to my collection.

Here's my 1903 made in 1940 and 1908 made in 1921with a few of their contemporaries :

A quick snap of my two honeys... first pic together I think.

Top gun is Type II (barrel bushing and high polish finish) .380 #4936 (1910 vintage) - a gift from my stepfather in 2015. This was the first handgun I ever shot and is the last I would give up.

Bottom gun is Type III (1922) .380 #59623 - my shooter - and it is a sweet one. Extremely accurate with my mild handloads at 25 yards and puts the brass in a small pile nearby. You couldn't ask for a better all around shooter IMHO - hard to believe it's 95 years old!

I have one 1908M and one 1908 .25 auto left Ei8ht - and you aren't getting them! ;):bang_wall::cool:


I got this package from Kid Sopris years ago. It has been professionally refinished; and is a great shooter. Now you know, Ei8ht, where that holster I gifted you came from! It was shipped to Von Lengerke & Antoine in Chicago. Here's another photo of it. The medals and ribbons are mine; not really impressive, but document my 30 years in the service.

I really like the type II 380 bushing hammerless..
Who said a beat up old hag of a pistol was not beautiful .....
