Hi, a friend has a Colt Model 1903 Pocket pistol .32 Auto that he got from his Dad. Manufactured in 1920 per the serial number. He's not a gun guy, but he said he was having malfunctions.Sounded like the brass was getting hung up in the slide and not ejecting. I tried it both round nose and hollow point ammo, and did not have that issue.I can't imagine he would be limp wristing a .32? I did notice however that the slide catch/safety was going into the safe position a significant percentage of time after firing. If I held it down, it would fire all eight rounds without issue. Any ideas about this? The other question I have is, after finding out via Youtube how to field strip it, This firearm has no guide rod. Is it suppose to? Thanks very much.
