More Info on Colt's reintroduced Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless.

If you are a fan of classic guns you'll be very pleased to know Colt is turning out at least two versions of this classic gun. The first is a military version of the pistol with a phosphate "parkerized" finish and a serial number and history which corresponds to the General Officer the original military gun was issued to.  This version will be great for military buffs who want a modern version of a service connected pistol which they can carry use in competitions or reenactments.   

The second version is blued steel and hopefully an option for a nickel finish. Again a great gun which can be carries and used. As of right now, 32 ACP is the only caliber available, but I think a 380 version may follow at some point. My take, although controversial, is that practically speaking there is no discernible difference between the two.
