Is there a way to determine if a Python came out of the Colt Custom Shop? The gun in question is an unfired 1983 year of manufacture. The box is available but is tattered. One end is missing. There is one end label and that one is loose. I could get the info from that label if it w ould help. The gun has Eliason sights. It has a really smooth action and a better trigger than the Python I presently own. The one I presently own isn't bad though. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I have not had the opportunity to compare the 2 guns side by side although I can do that. Is this info that Colt will give out on the phone?
