    Smile Colt factory repair manual for Python

    As a matter of interest did Colt ever issue a Training repair manual to assist gunsmiths with repairs or was all this information kept "In House" by Colt.

    It would seem that most of the people who did fine repair work on Colt I frames passed on without ever writing up their experiences with these firearms.

    I have only ever read one book which detailed repair on Colt revolvers if nothing else Mr Kuhnhausen has left people who cherish Colts with an insight into their workings.

    Before he published his books working on a Colt was a Black Art. If people do not write down their knowledge to share in the gun smithing field unfortunately it goes to the grave with them and that is a such a waste of knowledge.

    Copies of manuals supposedly used for Colt armorers schools show up now and then on auction. Based on claimed page count alone, they are obviously no where near as extensive and thorough as the Kuhnhausen manuals. I suspect that could be because major operations required in the course of factory repair might well be done at an assembly station or by someone who learned the manufacturing "job" over a period of time rather than by someone who had just run through an armorers course. Those processes may have been covered by internal manufacturing documents, but they would tend to be part of the Colt intellectual property. Very much JMO.
