    I have a 1981 Colt catalog showing a 22 & 22WMR Python.
    Does anyone know if these were ever actually made?
    Thanks.

    I just purchased a 1962 blue 6" Colt Python. It doesn't have the original wood grips. Do any of you experts have a link or picture or can give me a good discription of what they looked like stock from the factory in 1962?

    Thanks!

    Anyone know the DOM of a Colt Python s/n PY9526?

    Also, this revolver has a 'single hole' front sight blade (missing). Did it come with a red ramp or plain blued from sight blade?

    Where can one get a single hold red ramp blade for it?

    Thanks

    I recently came across a .357 colt python. Gun is in beautiful shape. Has stage grips and seems to be barley (possibly not) fired. I'm kind of confused on the finish though. It seems to be a matte black finish. Has anybody seen/heard of this? I'm not sure if its refurbished or if its original. The only information I have is it was manufactured in the late 70's. I have not come across any in this finish. Any information would help.

    Thanks.

    You got a late production one. Going to have to call Colt customer service @ 1-800-962-COLT.

    I would check Brownells Gunsmith Supply, for a replacement front sight. They have been in business for many years, and have a very extensive selection of parts and accessories. Probably the biggest seller of new replacement parts in the U.S.

    If Brownells doesn't have any new replacement sights in stock? Try Gun Parts Corp. For used ones.
