Coltautos.com Gun of the Month - March 2016
Colt Model 1900 .38 ACP Sight Safety
Relic Condition

Colt Model 1900 Sight Safety Relic - This pistol is an early sight safety with rear plunge milled serrations. These early Colt Model 1900 pistols are typically encountered with smooth walnut stocks and the use of these smooth walnut stocks transitioned into variations with forward slide serrations.  Because the serial number is completely illegible, it can only be assumed that this gun was from a transitional period or had the stocks replaced with the later hard rubber type prior to making the transition into its present relic state.
