Alright, winter break is here and time to start the work. Several of you have been asking about it and yes I finally have time to work on it. To fill in the others:
I've been waiting in anticipation for my 21 birthday to purchase a Colt 1903 hammerless pocket automatic for my first pistol and project gun.

History- colt picked up the patent for this pistol from John Browning in the early 1900s and produced their first model in 1903, obviously. The little pocket gun was a huge hit with civilians, mobsters and eventually some light military usage too. Capone always carried one, Bonnie broke Clyde out of jail with one, Dillinger died with one in his pocket. It was a general officers pistol for a little in WW2, Patton had one, and was popular with OSS officers, precursor to the CIA.

The '03 hammerless is the classic carry gun and most modern ones can draw their lineage to it.

So on my Bday I picked one up at the local gun show, how convenient, for an incredible price and condition.

Goal- find a beater, restore it too its former glory and turn it into a modern carry piece that Mr. Browning would be proud of.

No pics of mine right now, sorry. I'll have them up tomorrow.

Anyone else carrying a classic or working on one?

Gorgeous little pistols, aren't they? I'm wanting to get ahold of a 1908 in .380. Same design, little more potent.

Let us know how she shoots.

Doesn't matter what gun you have, as long as you can hit what you're looking at.

I have a pistol based off the 1903 and 1911, the Soviet Tokarev pistol. Mine is a 1953 Romanian.

Maybe not as pretty, but shoots just as well. The forward 1" is an addon muzzle brake. I'm considering putting some nice wood grips on it.
