    My father died and left me a Colt Automatic - 1903 .380 (it is stamped 1903 not 1908) Pocket Hammerless 45256. I don't have the magazine for this gun and I want to know if I can get one. Also what is the value of this gun? Thank you.

    Finding a real one is next to impossible. There are reproductions, but most of them are crap.

    These folks have repros made especially for them. I've been meaning to buy one and see if it's worth a flip, but haven't yet. Midway USA sells one, made by National. In the "customer ratings" it seems to get a solid 1 star out of a possible 5, so I'm staying away from those.

    Most of the repro magazines have un-hardened feed lips. They will work OK for a while, but eventually the lips bend and the result is misfeeds. Of course, any replacement magazine (or other major part) decreases the cullector value of the gun.
