Condition, condition, etc. As low as $200 with the mag if in sad shap and way up there ($500 +) if in 80% or better original condition. Mine looks like ****, made in 1913 and shoots FMJ like a full auto. Paid $200 years ago and love the gun. DF

As "Roy" would say: "Hope that helps."

Let's clarify a few things. First, the gun you are describing is a Colt Model 1903 .32 Hammerless auto pistol. There were around 3/4 million produced for the commercial market; very few were made for military service and of those, even fewer were for Navy use, mostly during WWII. U.S. pistols are marked accordingly.

In today's market I doubt if once can be found for less than $300 and that would be for a worn shooter. In "new-in-the-box" condition, they are selling for around $1500. These are higly collectible guns.

What is your pistol's serial number so we can date it, and please post some photos so we can see the condition. Thanks.

OK, now I'm confused. You apparently hijacked a thread that is three years old, and that thread dealt with a Colt Model 1903 .32 auto.

In order to be sure what Colt model it really is, please post some photos (there is no Colt Model 1905 Pocket Pistol). It could be a Pocket Positive, but the model name should be stamped on the barrel.

Terry - Those are the patent dates, not the model name. Without a model name and photos, it is tough to tell what you have.

Terry - Is there any chance that instead of "Pocket Pistol" on the side, it actually says "Colt New Pocket" in a circle around the Rampant Colt (Colt's trademark? If so yours was made in 1904 and would be worth around $250-$300 depending on condition. Does it look like this one?

1905 is the year they came out with the .380 version of the 1903.

moe - the OP was referring to a double action .32 caliber Colt revolver, not the Model 1908 .380 Hammerless Auto.

According to R.L. Wilson's book, the .380 was not produced until 1908. While it resembles the Model 1903, it is not the same. It is the Model 1908, NOT a .380 version of the 1903.

Mary, you have added on to a thread that began several years ago and concerns several different types of Colt pistols.

You need to start YOUR OWN thread, telling what type of gun you have, what condition it is in, and hopefully posting a number of clear photos of your gun. That is THE ONLY WAY that we can provide you with the information you seek.

And by the way, it would also be helpful if you TELL US WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW. Just posting a serial number means absolutely nothing.
