    I have someone looking to sell a 1981 Colt Diamondback .22 with 6” barrel. It is unfired in the box with docs but has the black rubber Colt presentation grips which confuses me. I thought in 1981 they all came with the Colt checkered wood grips with medallions. Does anyone know for sure if this...

    Thought I'd ask you fine gentlemen this question, because I honestly can't find much at all online. Below is a picture of a pair of grips I recently purchased (yesterday actually, and they are still on their way in the mail.) I honestly probably overpaid, but I wanted to grab them while I had...

    I'm just making a quick post hoping anyone with experience could give me some input. It's sort of hard finding this information through google. Basically, I know there are hundreds of alternatives, but I've got my heart set on getting my 1936 detective special a pair of classic style white...

    Hello everone. I recently inherited a Colt Office Police from my father. It's got a six inch barrel and bright blue finish. Unfortunately, it's got replacement rubber Aimpoint grips. I'd like to replace these with the original Colt grips to get back to original condition. The serial number is...
  5. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    I am getting a Pocket Nine this week, but I am looking to purchase some wooden grips. Does anyone know where I can purchase some or have them made?

    I just purchased a Colt Official Police .38 the butt is stamped "Michigan State Prison" and on the end of the butt is is stamped No. 16 I haven't see the grips on my gun on any other "official Police" model. mine are the prancing horse black checkered plastic grips. Anyone out there know if...

    I got this Colt Army Special 41 from my grandfather when he passed. It's blued with a 6" barrel. I need some help with the grips. It was his sidearm in WWII. I got a Colt Letter of Authenticity which states it was delivered to a general store in 1908 in St. Louis, MO. Unfortunately, the...

    I would be grateful for any recommendations for a source of custom ivory stocks to fit to a Korth revolver.

    Okay so last night a buddy that ins't into guns gave me his fathers old shooting range bag because he knew I would appreciate it more than he would. So in the bag there was some old ear muffs and plugs and a pachmayr box. I looked into the box that showed black grips and there was a set of...

    Hi, I have a set of nice Original Colt Gen 2 grips on my '57 python - used but very decent condition. I am hoping someone has a nice set of Original Colt Gen 1 grips and is either willing to sell and / or interested in trade / cash for my Gen 2 grips. PM me please if you have anything...

    Dear Gentlemen and Ladies present, I enjoy looking for Colt treasures on the various internet gun auction websites. Rarely do I buy... sometimes I do... but I watch the market... so to speak. I see... on occasion... what I think to be... on the revolvers of my choice... a faint, ghost like...
  12. Colt Revolvers
    Hi everyone, I've got another question for the experts on here. I have a 1968 Diamondback currently wearing newer stocks (the straight line style). I believe the correct stocks are the "smiley" style with silver medallions, and I have an opportunity to get some. One seller is offering a set for...

    Hello everyone, this will be my first post on the forums, and thank you in advance for your knowledge and advice! I have always appreciated Colt's quality and craftsmanship, and have wanted to get one of their snake guns for quite a while now. I am not a collector, but despite the high prices...
  14. Python
    Gen 3 grips on a 1983 T-series 6" Python shows a gap under the I-frame. Suggestions? Just picked up a low numbered T-series Python. The grips are excellent Gen 3 wood grips but there is a 3/16" gap on the back of the I-frame. These are wrap-around, over-sized grips with gold medallions. These...

    Hi, i'm looking for a set of original Official Police grips, circa 1941. Checkered walnut, square butt with silver medallions (e-i frame). Have a detroit PD issued nickel one with absolutely awful fake stag.

    What suggestions are out there for repairing this set of stocks? Should I fill with epoxy of some sort or would contraction/expansion be an issue now or later? There is a small crack emanating out, toward the outside.

    I have a Colt Police Positive, the serial number "26xxxR" seems to date it to 1978 per proofhouse.com. It has "Presentation Grip by Pachmayr." (sic) Is that a correct grip for it? There is no Colt escutcheon on the grip. Also, someone put a screw in from the right side and it is slightly...
  18. Colt Revolvers
    I mentioned way back in February that I scored a 1924 Police Positive (Not Police Positive Special) with a 2" .38 special barrel that was obviously cut down, with 500 rounds of nice Remington ammo for $200 total. The ammo was priced at $18 a box, so I feel like I paid $20 for a shooter grade...
  19. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    So after shopping for replacement 1903 stocks and not loving the idea of cnc machined repos I decided to use a little dark teak I had laying around and whipped myself up a homemade pair. They won't pass for factory quality but I like 'em better than what is available and I just couldn't beat the...

    i have a 1974 ds given to me by a relative that now has aftermarket grips on it. Does anyone know where to get original wood grips? I bought some on ebay and they turned out to be plastic remakes. thanks!
