Picked this little gem up at the Dallas gun show over the weekend. The photos don't do it justice, as the pistol
is really in excellent condition, save for the bluing loss on the frame. The fire blued parts all have quite a bit of
color left and the roll marks are very crisp. From the SN, it looks like a 1904 production. Not too shabby for a
105 years old!

One of these days I'm going to send off an in-the-white M1903/8 off for a pocket IPSC pistol treatment. al la the Bill Laughridge workover.

I sent this one's younger brother off several months ago for some decent sights and a few other touches. Before it
left, it made a trip to Dale Woody to get all the rollmarks recut. I've also got a very early 08 Colt at home that's all
prepped to send to Dale. Going back to the office full time sure cuts into one's play time. :(
