This Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless is a well worn piece and shows most of it's wear through the center of the slide. Most likely from being carried in the spring clamp shoulder holster. This civilian holster which has been modified with a piece of military web strapping has been scavenged from something else. An interesting combat carry rig.
