Could anyone give me the serial number ranges for the Colt Python? For example:

1950-1960
1961-1970
1971-1980
1981-1990
1991-2000
2001-Present

What year did Colt start putting the rubber grips on the Python?


Thanks in advance!

The publicly available Colt serial numbers end in 1985.
For numbers after that, you have to call Colt.

I don't think anyone knows precisely when Colt started using the Pachmayr rubber Presentation grips, but it was shortly after 1983 when they introduced the stainless steel models.

Rubber was used almost exclusively on stainless or plated models.
I don't remember seeing rubber on regular production blued models up until the end of production.
