My Father passed away recently and left me everything in the
gun safe. To my amazement there were 2 NIB Colt Pythons
serial #'s indicate 1968 mfg.
Here's my problem..He removed both set's of grips and they are no
where to be found. I need  sets of new original walnut service grips
w/gold med. Can anyone help? Thanks John

Check ebay. Here's a set with 10 hours left on the auction. They're already up to $200.
Thanks, But those on ebay are target grips,
I want service grips that only came on the
2.5 like thesehttp://www.bobscolts.com/100_0079.JPG

As far as I'm aware, NOBODY stocks those stocks.
Plan on spending at least $100 for a nice set and hawk Ebay for the next couple months.
They will show up from time to time.
I have some, but I'm NOT parting with my sets.
Goods luck, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)

The Colt Service type grips are not that hard to find.
Here's a set of used ones at Gun Parts:
These grips show up on Ebay quite often, and usually don't bring extremely high prices.
Other sources are in the loose grip boxes at gun shops and gun shows.

If you have 2 NIB Pythons, you don't want to put those hacks on them that E-gun parts is selling. Yikes, can you say Nas-tee ?
Hang in there and keep your eyes open on the Bay.
Don't waste your time buying junk.
The last set of factory correct PYTHON service grips on the bay that were minty went for $100.
I'm always watching as well.
Good luck, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)

unused furniture..I know they are out there somewhere,
