Don’t have them yet (state ok’s way behind), but I bought two 1903’s last weekend. I know there are fans of the 1903’s here, so I thought I’d post.

One is a 1925 (type III) with wood grips that is like new. The other is a 1930 (type IV) that is new in the box, with papers, etc! The 1930 will be a safe queen, but the other one will get shot. I’ll attempt to post pics after I get them home.

I’ve got a couple... both early, but one is “early early” with a three digit SN.
Both very fun guns for point shooting, very nice feel in the hand.

Very cool. In my opinion that is the most beautiful pistol ever designed. Please post pics when you get them.

Very nice guns. Good pickup.

Do you guys who own them shoot them much?

I have a well worn type I (bushing ) that shoots very well,

I'm trading it to myself (FFL I iz)for one I picked up recently that's been refinished, long ago, but is good to go,
I want a pocket gun I don't have to worry about the finish on,


both are 32, both shoot great, quite accurate, and natural pointers,

and yes, the sights suck on all of them

You guys are making me feel bad. I had a 1918 specimen and I was very disappointed in it. I did not like the feel (very small), terrible trigger, poor sights, and difficult to shoot because of the aforementioned. And then it developed a broken frame. I still have all of the parts (except the frame).

I have a 1918 1903 Hammerless and I love the feel, my trigger is awesome and very light 1911 like. If it wasn't so picky with ammo I'd shoot it more.

Goodness Gary! It was 1918. Big Grin

Cleaned one up not too long ago for a buddy after we shot it. Fine little gun.

I like that, “and then it developed a broken frame”. Nice wordsmithing. That is why I wondered about how many of you guys shoot these. They sure are nice looking though.

I love the 1903. I have one from 1904 and it is very accurate and extremely reliable. So fun to shoot. As I get older the sights are not great for me, but what an amazingly genius engineering design.

I have my grandfather's 1903, manufactured in the late nineteen teens. I still shoot it from time to time, it's really pretty accurate from 10-15 yards.

Way ahead of its time, too. The Glock 43 of its era. I want one but every time I find a decent one, I am too broke to buy it!

Have one of the US Armament 1903 newly manufactured units. Love it! Very thin for concealed carry in the gun unfriendly environment I live in. Fast on target and with minimal recoil one can put 5 shots on target very quickly. Doesn't have the power of the 9mm but don't feel under-gunned.

Congrats. Mine is a 1914 and is a fun shooter. I bought it back in 2009 for about $325. I consider it money well spent. It is well worn but mechanically sound.

Bill always has nice stuff. I told him I remember lots of spy and detective movies from the 50's and somebody always had one of these Colts.

I have never had one, but suppose I could be tempted for one in .32. However, I need to be selling, not buying.

FAL, Triple K is the only after market Mag that I know of for the 1903’s. I don’t have any knowledge of if they work or not. Your 1903 is very nice!

I’m picking up the two pistols on Saturday. Could have gotten them earlier, but the dealer forgot to call me and let me know. Oh well.

The Triple K mag I bought direct from Triple K was crap, and they refused to let me return it under warranty.

I bought a mag from US Armament and it works fine.
