Colt Model 1902 Sporting .38 ACP - Serial Number 6807

Early Colt Model 1902 Sporting Model - This gun has the early milled front slide serrations and Browning's Patent marking on the left side of the slide.  During this period of production, guns with odd numbered serial numbers were fitted with rounded hammers and guns with even numbered serial numbers were fitted with spur hammers.   These guns lacked the slide lock and lanyard loop as seen on the 1902 Military Model.

Close-up of front milled slide serrations.  Notice the small takedown hole in the bottom of the frame which was carried over from the Model 1900.

On these early Sporting Models, the trigger, pins and screws were fire blued.   The hard rubber grips were standard on these guns from the beginning of production. (Another carry-over from the Model 1900)
