Another I found... this was 1 of a 3 pistol lot I picked up after the Glock... and the smallest of the bunch. A 1908 Colt hammerless 25acp, or it's also known as the Colt Vest Pocket, which according to the serial, dates it at 1919. Colt made these from 1908 to 1948 with just over 420,000 made. It's Colt's copy of the Browning 1905, and it is the first American manufactured pistol chambered in .25acp. So this could be considered one of the .25acp grandfathers.
So... it's 99 years old, and is in pretty good shape, nice bore, the barrel has a touch of pitting at the end, which I show in the photo with the slide pulled back, but it's nothing to detract much from it. The finish is still a pretty blue which is hard to show without decent lighting, it does have some odd, light surface scratches. Also, for it's age, it has some modern features... a grip safety, a magazine disconnecter and a side safety latch. Later pistols are marked "Tansley Device", which is the magazine disconnecter feature, named after the Colt engineer that developed it in 1916/17, George Tansley. The safety catch, grip safety, and trigger are case hardened. And it even had the original Colt magazine with it..
And.....it's small.. it's all steel, it weighs just over 12oz, the barrel is a 2 inch, and it's magazine holds 6rds. And it was not a fun pistol to tear down..at least for a guy with big hands...maybe if I had a 3rd hand..
Just for a little size comparison... this is the Colt with a Glock 10rd 45 acp magazine.
