    Yes those stocks are ruined, they were not designed for the New Service.
    Every King gun deserves a set of Ropers!

    Hugh,

    Are you saying that they will no longer fit an early Python? I mean if you can't see the alteration, they are very nice stocks but if they don't fit...they don't fit.

    I didn't think that the stocks from the Thre Fifty Seven / Python would fit a New Service. I tried to fit a set of stocks from one to the other, but I used Herrett's stocks so I'm only out 20-30 dollars
    Got an extra hole at the bottom and it also looks like there's wood glued in at the top. Looks fixable though.

    For some reason I got this idea of altering a set of Herrett's Python stocks to fit the New Service, needless to say it did not work out so well. But I think that these Colt stocks in question might be savable by glass bedding them to whatever revolver one wanted to fit them to. Or just leave them on the New Service.

    I have two sets of OMM stocks that were modified to fit NS's. They still fit an E/I frame. All that I had to do was add a spacer to the bottom where they had ben trimmed. They still had the original locator pin hole. They would just wobble without the spacer.
