COLT MODEL "M" 1908 HAMMERLESS POCKET .380 serial #68510 indicates 1923 manufacture according to Colt online tables- please verify to your satisfaction. Correct two tone original magazine. Bluing in amazing condition for its age. Very tight and correct. Another oustanding piece from The Greene Collection. FROM WIKI: "In addition to lawful owners, many gangsters of the pre-World War II era favored the Model 1903 and Model 1908 because they were relatively small and easily concealed. It is said that Al Capone kept one in his coat pocket and Bonnie Parker used one to break Clyde Barrow out of jail after smuggling it into the jail by taping it to her thigh. Bank robber John Dillinger was carrying this model of pistol when he was shot by FBI agents outside the Biograph theater on July 22, 1934, and another famous bank robber, Willie Sutton, had one when he was captured by police in Brooklyn on February 18, 1952."
What is 'The Greene Collection'? A man that has built a collection that represents the best of my finds and his own over decades of collecting. A collector with a true love of the gun, fine craftsmanship and impeccable taste spanning all genres and dates that simply enjoyed acquiring the very best. It is with great pride that I represent his collection over the coming months.
My name is August and I am the owner. As an authorized dealer I must adhere to published retail pricing guidelines. You will get the absolute lowest delivered price by calling my direct line. 512-567-7855. You will get much more than that however. I want you to get the right gun both for you and your application. You won't be passed off to a clerk, rather you will speak directly to ME. Have the confidence you are buying the exact gun you need for your goals by discussing it with a master class competitor, instructor and fitter with over 40 years of experience in the shooting sports. I know the guns I sell and their makers. I visit them all and have relationships with their owners and gunsmiths. You will know what you are getting and be happy when you do. Thank you
A TRULY DIFFERENT BUYING EXPERIENCE
We are not open to the public so your gun has not been handled unlike retailers where guns are endlessly handled, slammed shut and clacked back on a rack countless times by the masses. I have managed firearms retail and could not stand this aspect of it. When you receive a gun from me it’s been packed with care and arrives as your NEW GUN. One person handles each gun from the time it arrives until it leaves and that is me.
When a gun is sold it gets properly packed that day, by me with FedEx tracking sent to my client immediately. I contact your FFL FOR YOU, and handle all the paperwork. California? No problem, I have been shipping there for over a decade. Canada and Australia- have sent many there, just ask for details. Buying a fine gun should be fun and exciting. I don't want to sell you one gun, I want your business for life and want your referrals from building trust. I have been the largest seller of Caesar Guerini, Syren and Fabarms for the 5th straight year because of service and value. This is my model and I hope you give me a call. THANK YOU for reading.
