Might be a double post but the other one didn’t show up for some reason. You are correct, a 1903 circa 1939. I don’t carry most of my older colts anyway. I got beater guns like this 1938 Walther PP to carry.View attachment 7332868
I carried an early post-war Walter PP Manhurin .32 for years. One of the finest and most underrated carry guns out there. Dead nuts accurate, reliable as gravity. Still have mine. It’s a superb gun! Beautiful pre-war example, RC!
