Would make an excellent "project" piece for restoration
I have 6 of the 1903’s in .32. I really like them. Had them all refinished. Still a good shooter for a 100+ year old gun.
st attended a gun show in Bullhead City AZ yesterday. Quite a few people there.
Masks. Sanitizer everywhere.
And don't stick your nose out of the mask.
Had lines on where to stand if there had been lines to get in. Weren't any on arrival or departure.
Same approximate condition (80-85%+/-) on Gunbroker at $800 and up. Very rarely do you see an auction win below that for the 380s. .32 1903s can be had lower.
As a bonus, the original two tone 380 magazines usually sell around $150 on their own. You/I can get aftermarket mags in the $25 range.
Get that phone cam working Brother.
No dollar bill for size required.
Doesn't look to need any restoration. No way I'd change a thing about it.
I'd take some 0000 steel wool and break free and polish the rust spots and detail disassemble and clean it and that's all.
Technically that's a 1903.
Sweet gun, congratulations.
I heard they are pretty smooth, how is the action and trigger on yours?

Haven't fired yet but the trigger breaks like glass. Maybe 3#s or so. Slide moves like it's on ball bearings.
I'm betting it's probably going to be pretty accurate. Clear/clean bore too.
The 0000 steel wool route will happen for sure. I'm somewhat loath to alter it as it's better looking in person.
Nice looking gun. Enjoy.
The stories that pistol could tell. Congrats.
Given the shape yours is in, I’m not surprised. If you haven’t refinished it, that’s the best shape I’ve ever seen one in.
Even ~25 years ago I couldn’t find something that nice.
But a previous owner engraved his/her social security number on the gun.
Otherwise that factory nickel finish is still quite nice. It’s a 1909 too, still have the black hardened rubber grip that came on early models.
That’s a serious find you have! Absolutely beautiful and very rare given all the samples I’ve seen over the past quarter century.
Yeah and I foolishly sold one for $200.00. .32 and Nickle plated. Didn't need money, just didn't think it would be useful. One of many stupid gun deals.
Nothing like being in the right place at the right time, Congrats on that purchase! .....Will trade you primers for it??
