Colt Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless .380 ACP
with Deluxe Checkered Walnut Stocks

Colt Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless .380 ACP serial number 97146 - given the severe pitting, this pistol is almost in relic condition but it has a feature that's seldom encountered on these Colt pocket hammerless models. Notice the set of deluxe checkered walnut stocks with recessed Colt medallions. The stocks have a scalloped uncheckered boarder as well as an uncheckered diamond around each grip screw escutcheon.  For examples with accompanying scarce factory features, sometimes you have to take them as you find them. Colt factory letter indicates that this pistol was shipped with blue finish and Checkered Wood stocks to Knickerbacher, Schoverling, Daly & Gales, New York, New York, on November 26, 1927 in a 5 gun shipment.
