Colt Pocket Hammer

Just because it's quiet around here; a photo of an old 1914 Colt 38 ACP "Pocket Hammer". No threaded barrel or accessory rail, but after 105 years, the old gun still functions reliably.

Old doesn't mean obsolete or bad. That pistol may well be better made than currently produced pistols given the skill and craftsmanship used in its production.

People are still carrying that pistol's big brother, the 1911. Basically every double action revolver currently made is based on patents issued before your pocket hammer was even made.

Those are nice guns regardless of when they were made. I've looked at a couple of .32 acp reproductions, but an original would be that much nicer.
