Very cool! The gun still looks great to be that old! Its awesome that you have that information about it too. I've always thought the pre-1911 Colt semiautomatics were interesting. Do you have ammo for it?

Besides modern production .38ACP I also have a few boxes of vintage .38 ACP for display. I've shot the 1903 .38ACP British-proofed Pocket Model pistol but not this one.

I was curious if you ever shoot any of these collectibles.

Nice gun.

I'm not sure if I would shoot it. Back in the day, my grandpa used to buy and shoot .38 ACP out of his .357 Colt Lawman.

It is easy to see that the Russians used the Colt 1902 to design their TT-33 "Tok".
