Almost 100

My Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless was made in 1913.  It was in very bad shape when I bought it, so I had it refinished.  I think I came out well, but the roll marks are very faint from the polishing.

It's companion Pocket Hammerless is a 1908, made in 1926.  The original patina is fine by me.  This one came with a kind of bonus feature, an original two-tone magazine!

The silly camera introduced that curve to the slide.
