Colt 38 auto different safeties
I am trying to do alittle research about the Colt 38 auto's made in the early 1900's. I do know the 1900 Colt 38 has the safety made into the rear sight, and it was later modified. As far as I know, this is the only Colt pistol that had this type of safety, am I correct? This conversation came up between some friends and myself, and none of us are familier with this particular design.
Were the modifications due to a bad safety design? (I would feel its at the very least an awkward place for the safety)
Thanks in advance!
