A couple of weeks ago I traded into a 1927 Colt Officer's Model .38 Special. The original grips are worth preserving so I wanted replacement grips that would also fit my gnarled old hands better. Dave Markowitz shared a chart that showed Python grips might fit my old Colt. I rolled the dice and won! These Pachmayr Python grips fit my old Officer's Model perfectly! Thank you Dave Markowitz!!
