    I have a Savage model 1907 32 ACP that was actually manufactured in 1917 that I carry sometimes as a BUG and was an EDC for a small amount of time. Do I win???

    I have, in the past, carried my Sig 225, made in 1979, and marked "Made in W. Germany"

    I guess my oldest carry gun would be my model 36. I'm not sure of the date of manufacture, but if I had to guess, it would be late 70's.

    It was probably the most inexpensive gun too...$15.00 at a yard sale about 8 years ago. I have NEVER had a FTF,FTE ECT out of it!

    Very cool! It's looks like an early Luger style!

    Actually there is a little history behind this model...when the US Army was looking for a weapon in 45ACP to use against the Morrows in the filipines, the big brother of this pistol was the only contender for the contract against the colt 1911. Of course, we all know how That turned out.

    I bet if you contacted S&W http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...4_757812_image that they could tell you, although it says the letter of authenticity is $50, wonder if they can just tell you when it was made.

    That 1907 is cool, isn't that the pistol that kind of has a slide part over the barrel? Like you pull back the slide and the actual barrel is seperate?

    Yeah, and to tear it down, you lock the slide to the rear and twist the back of the slide CCW and pull out the bolt carrier in one piece.

    Nope. Got you beat, at least for now. I mentioned it in the other thread. It's not an everyday carry, but I do carry it from time to time.

    Sixto, if you only want to know how old it is you can save your $50. Just cross reference the serial number at www.proofhouse.com and you'll find the date of manufacture.

    I have a very thin concealable 1903 Colt 32 Auto (manufacture date in 04 or 05) which shoots and functions great but is not an EDC, it is on the shelf if needed for deep conceal... but I have no quams carrying it I just consider my other guns more suitable for self defense... no doubt in wars and on the street whether police or criminals the 32/380 colts had there day being carried!

    My normal EDC is a 1911 Springer from 2001.
