COLT MODELS Gun of the Month - January 2000
Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket .25 ACP
Factory Inscribed "R.P.D. No. 102."

Factory Inscribed Model N .25 ACP

January's Gun of the Month is a factory inscribed Model N police contract variation.  The pistol bears the inscription "R.P.D. No. 102" on the left side of the frame in front of the serial number. Due to the small number of police contract guns in this caliber, examples of this variation are uncommon.

This gun came from a Judge in Reading, PA, so the "R.P.D." is believed to be for the Reading Police Department.  This special order Model N pistol was one of 18 shipped 9/16/20, bearing the numbers 101 - 118 in the serial number range 276658-276675, and one of 31 factory inscribed police issues.
