    I traded a SBH for this today. Have always wanted one. This one made in 1936.

    Looks great! If it's fit and finished like my 1936 Colt Woodsman, I know it's a gem. :)


    I love the roll marks on yours.

    Congrats on your 1903! If you run into any firing problems, replace all the spring and it should be GTG. I remember the smith at my local range insisting that he take a look at mine when he overheard me talking to the counter guys about the issue. After 30min he came back out and told me my firing pin was broken in two pieces. :der: He then said he could make me a new one for $25. I said thanks and quickly did a :bolt: out the door since the firing pin is suppose to be in two pieces. I changed out all the original springs but kept them on the side and guess what no more problems!

    Here's mine with original bluing made in 1931

    Thanks y'all. Now I gotta try and find a few spare mags. I've heard the Triple K mags are junk.

    I always think of Cagney, Bogart, and Edward G. Robinson when I see one these. Great find.

    Had one in 380 many years ago. Sold it or traded it. Don't remember the reason. I shot it a lot, fun gun and easy to carry...
