Part two of the Film Noir Series featuring this classic handgun. John Popp and National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier present the 1903 Colt on a special edition of the Curator's Corner. Designed to be the ultimate carry piece, this gun is very thin, has no protrusions, no hammer and a very simple safety lock. For this reason classic film noir detectives are often seen slipping a Colt 1903 from their pockets quickly and quietly without a hang-up. This unique firearm is currently on display at the National Firearms Museum. Originally aired on 11/12/2009.
