    is there a thread on factory Colt boxes compilation? used throughout the years

    I have searched here for a while with no luck.

    It would be nice to have a sample of all variation of original factory boxes Colt had used and its timeline. Great for references.

    The simple answer is no but it sounds like a great idea for a book.

    He even has boxes for Colts that don’t exist. I’ve seen him selling post-war boxes for pre-war models and vise versa.

    Who is that gentelman and how can he be contacted? I´d like to have an original box for my 1995 Anaconda.

    He's known here as "fake box guy". We don't reccomend him unless you don't mind paying a couple hundred bucks for a FAKE.

    For example, what does the original box and label looks like for a 1972 Trooper, 1971 Diamondback 1961 Python and 1965 Python?
    Excellent idea for a sticky thread .
