Subject

Colt, Model 1908, Hammerless, Pocket Pistol, .25 acp

Description

The Colt Model 1908 is the original pocket pistol. With its concealability and a 6+1 capacity in the magazine, it made 2-shot Derringers a thing of the past. This .25 acp pocket pistol became popular with officers as a backup pistol, and with regular citizens. Its small frame and shootability made the Colt Model 1908 a must for men’s pockets and women’s purses. It was so popular with the public that it became the 3rd most successful Colt semi-automatic.

This particular pistol was made early in 1909 with a very low serial number of 3758.
