Unblinking Eye
Colt1903-Banner

On the left is a Type I .32 Pocket Model with a 4” barrel, and on the right is a Type III .32 Pocket Model with a 3.8” barrel.  I’ve never read an explanation of why the barrel was shortened.  The gun on the left has its original finish, while the gun on the right has been reblued (note that the barrel is blue).
