They were produced from 1908 to 1945 with ~138,000 made in three types. All were chambered in the .380 ACP (also named the .380 Auto, 9mm Browning, 9mm Corto, 9mm Kurz, 9mm Short, and 917mm)

Ultimate, should you find another sign, keep 'ole canebrake in mind brother.

...grumpy old men?? Hey, I resemble that statement!

At that price it had to be a Model 1908 "U.S. Property" or the Model 1908 General Officer's Pistol. The Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless (MODEL M .380 ACP) usually max's out at ~$1,700.



^ this pristine Colt Model 1908 "U.S. Property" sold for $6,500. You can see why!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I will, ima big colt fan. the one they had for that price was in similar shape but had engravings. It was a generals reward for doing something. It was a while ago when i seen it, before i knew too much about guns. But ill keep on the look out for ole signs like this one. Id like to get a few more to hang up in my gun room

This is why I was asking if it was original. These are the remakes that they sell at my local pawn shop. Cool find in the original!!
