Olde Timey

Does Vincent's 1911 look funny to you?



It looks small.  But all old movie 1911s look small to me.

The forward dust cover area of the slide looks to be...  different.

Same with the rear area where the grip safety is.  Look where it meets the web of his hand.

Oh, and no front sight.

So, either a gun model I am unfamiliar with of or... a prop gun?

Let's check the database!

Drat.  The former.  It's just a 1903 Colt Pocket Hammer.

A most excellent little piece. The pistol, I mean.

Also, if you ever get close to one of these, the pistol I mean, take a close look at the "ejector" in a good light, with a magnifier perhaps. Then imagine making one with a vise and file.
