    That's news.
    I just assumed that Colt had continued applying the inspection stamp under the serial number.
    If they stopped, I would think it was in the later 1990's.

    I just looked at 3 more Pythons so that's a total of 5 and this time i made sure to use a magnifying glass and there is no inspection stamp under the serial number on any of them, the Pythons that i looked at are all in the 1980's. I do have some 1990's Pythons but i would assume that if Colt stopped putting the inspection stamp under the serial number in the 1980's why would Colt start doing it in the 1990's.

    Wow! You have 5 custom shop Python revolvers? Darn, some people really like Colt Python and have the means to collect them. Enjoy and be safe.

    There usually some stampings on the grip of the frame. Mine has stampings there besides the serial number.
