    Find out if it's the same dimensions as the 1908 (.380 version), if so, both UBG and HBE list holsters for the 1908.

    IIRC both the pocket hammerlesses are the same size, so what fits one should fit both, but I'm sure a holster maker or OD would be more qualified to answer that.

    1903's are nice little pistols, but I wouldn't carry the one I have access to as it has a history with my family.

    The earliest 1903's had a 4" barrel, then in 1908 they changed it to 3.75" which the 1908 also has. So you'll want to check the barrel length of your gun to make sure the holster makers that offer that model have the same length barrel as yours.

    I suggest taking it to a custom holster maker or saddle shop in your area if you are willing to let them use the gun to mold it.

    I did that with my 1908 model. Raven Concealment Systems The Malabar Front had a whole kydex setup at a gun show in Harrisburg PA last year. I gave them the 1908 (they gave me a receipt) and came back an hour later to pick up my completed holster.

    I would buy a holster for a Ruger LCP/KelTec 3AT, and then buy a gun to go in it...
