Colt 1903 Classic Panel Aged Ivory with Gold Medallions
The Colt 1903/1908 Pocket Hammerless Pistol is the ultimate pocket pistol: smooth, flat and concealable. The 1903 comes in the 32 ACP caliber. The 1908 variant was in .380 ACP. Both versions look the same and take the same grips. This pistol was designed by John Browning and Colt produced approximately 570,00 between 1903 and 1945.

This pistol has a storied cultural history. It was issued to the Shanghai police in the 1930s. It was the US Army and Air Force General Officers pistol from WWII to the 1970s. (General Patton had four stars put on the grips of his 1908.) Gangsters like Al Capone carried them. Bonnie smuggled one into a jail to spring Clyde in 1932. But its widest identification comes from film noir and thriller movies of the 1930s and 1940s. Humphrey Bogart always seemed to be posing with one of the pistols.

The original grips were hard rubber and walnut. Stag, ivory and pearl went on special orders. Fitting is rarely a problem. We have attempted to recreate the historical grips for a classic pistol.
