Help !
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 [2] 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.

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:
http://www.e-gunparts.com/DisplayAd.asp?chrProductSKU=485950&chrSuperSKU=&MC=

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)

To the best of my knowledge, Colt never put a set of stocks on a revolver that didn't have to be taken off immediately and replaced with something intelligently designed and well made.

I wouldn't give you a nickel for a set of Colt revolver stocks.

Well Standing Wolf if you have any of those ugly, ill-fitting Colt stocks just laying around I will gladly take them off your hands. :D

andrewjjr:

The same stocks were used on Colt's much more common Offical Police model, but usually had nickeled trademark medallions. Some however had gold. Look for possibilities under both model names.

What I'd give isn't what I'd ask.

Truth to tell, I'm stuck with keeping all my Colt revolver stocks in case I ever decide to sell them. Sad, eh?

"Thanks, But those on ebay are target grips,"

Sorry, brain lock. I never think about service grips - I have large hands.
