2009 Gun of the Month - August 2000
Colt Model 1905 Serial Number 246
Slotted for Detachable Shoulder Stock/Holster Combination

Early Model 1905 sn 246 Cut for Stock/Holster

Colt Model 1905 serial number 246.  This was the sixth gun shipped with the cut for the optional Combination Stock/Holster.   Interestingly, of the 440 pistols which were shipped with the Stock/Holsters, there were 38 that were not.  This pistol letters as a one gun shipment to W. Bingham & Co. on March 8, 1906 and the letter indicates that it was shipped with the stock/holster.   There are no signs on the gun that it's ever had a stock/holster attached.
