    I picked up this gun today after watching it for a year. I couldn't take it anymore so I picked it up. This is the hammerless ultra slim concealment Colt, I need a holster for this baby!
    This is a really sweet gun in very good condition, I need a nice holster for it, hey ZooKeeper, you ever made a 1903 colt hammerless holster or would this be a start from scratch project?

    ZooKeeper,
    That would work, let me get some ideas together and we can discuss this further. I need something nice and "purdy" with one of them Killed Animals stitched on to do this gun justice, evil grin!
    Thanks!

    BTW just to pick at nits the Colt 1903 pocket auto has an internal hammer. Very safe design.

    Here's a link to a Colt collector's website full of photos, technical details, info on variations in this model and production numbers, etc. There is a whole page of info just on the 1903 pocket hammerless.
    http://www.coltautos.com/ModelMci.htm

    And it looks like there's a YouTube video, recently made, of somebody test-firing one of these 90+ year old pistols. It ran flawlessly, even rapid fire (8 shots in about 2 seconds!) and it was accurate too.

    Oh yes. I love my 1903. Nothing cooler in a retro-style way. It is heavy as modern guns go but it fits the hand, and the pocket so nice.
    It always goes to the range with me, and I'm a revolver man.

    That's got me thinking while on the subject of holsters... I might like a "pocket holster" for one.
