7/3/19 - This is an original, early production M1908 Colt Vest Pocket pistol. The serial number puts year of production in 1911. Also, this pistol has the desirable early variation grips. The grips look and feel original, however the left panel looks more brown in color, and the right panel is 100% black. We're not sure if this means the left panel is reproduction or not. The pistol has almost all finish missing, as shown. Mechanically sound with no issues and a fairly clean bore that rates 8/10 overall.
