hammer,

If you are talking about the .25; then the grip safety, trigger, and safety lever were case hardened.

Yeah, I meant the 25 auto 1908 pocket model hammerless and
thanks. I knew the safety lever and the trigger were case
colored, but was not sure about the grip safety. Grip safety
would wear quickly, I would think. Wonder why they didn't just
blue it with the rest of the frame.

hammer,

I agree with you, but they kept it until the end of production. They changed the formulation in 1914 to make the colors more vibrant.
Try to find a copy of John Brunner's " The Colt Pocket Hammerless Automatic Pistols ". Try doing a search on Amazon ( where I got mine ), or Ray Riling Books.

CP,

I picked mine up about two years ago for $100; wrapped in plastic, but no dust cover. The book was NIB! Phillips Publishing is working on a new release with mostly color pics. It's might be by late summer '08!!
