COLT MODELS Gun of the Month - April 2003
Colt 1908 Vest Pocket .25 ACP
Serial Number 400000

Model N Serial Number 400000

Colt Model N Serial Number 400000 - One of a two gun shipment to W.H. Hoegee Co, Los Angeles, CA, June 15, 1936.  Occasionally a collector will encounter an unusual serial number in the course of collecting.  This is one such example.  One would think that a pistol with such an unusual serial number  would be reserved for presentation to Colt employees when milestones in production were reached.  According to the factory letter, this gun was one of two guns shipped in standard configuration to a large Colt retailer in 1936.  In this year, production of this model was just over 2000 pistols.
