I think there was one listed here recently.

Maybe it is still available....?

The old double action Colt? I have one, but not sure if it is legal as a pocket pistol being double action.

A pocket pistol is a small frame, fixed sight, pre-1900 design revolver having a barrel length of four inches or less. Pocket pistols must be .31 caliber or larger. Model “P” Colts and clones and revolvers with swing out cylinders are specifically not allowed regardless of caliber, frame size, or barrel length

Colt Model 1877 DA revolvers are LEGAL for use as pocket pistols. Pocket pistols may not be used as or converted to main match revolvers.

Tnx, I didn't remember the Colts as being the exception.

Lots of DA legal pocket pistols. 
 

I do have a Colt Lightning. But the barrel is 4&1/4” so not PP legal, unless I want to lop off 1/4”! Also, other than style points, the lightning is not going to win any speed PP matches. Plus they are way to delicate to take that kind of pounding.
