Colt Will Reintroduce the 1903 Pocket Hammerless Automatic...

You saw it here first. After having done the single action army, percussion revolvers,  civil war rifle, Gatling gun and semi auto BAR, the little automatic Colt is next. I suppose the constant noise about it, and the current pocket gun craze, made them decide to try.

Well, maybe they will.  You'd think they wouldn't have had someone tool up unless they meant to sell them. I suppose the cost savings in current manufacturing techniques makes the project viable.

At any rate, all this is extrapolation from a prototype I've handled, and it's pretty indistinguishable from a standard Parkerized military issue example. There's nothing that I could see that's updated or improved, that is to say, cheapened. Just a straight 1903, markings and all. Didn't get to strip it, though

You read it here first.
