The Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless is a .380 ACP caliber variant of the Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless, designed by John Moses Browning. The compact, semi-auto pistol is nearly identical to its predecessor except for the bore diameter and the magazine, which holds seven rounds.

After precise, period-correct metal polishing, this legendary sidearm was exquisitely adorned by our in-house engraver Tom McArdle. Proper charcoal blue metal finishes and finely-checkered medallion grips are additional standouts of this special restoration.

This example was originally shipped in 1935 and restored by Turnbull Restoration in 2021.
