I have never heard of "pn" serial number on a Python, are you looking inside the yoke on the frame for the number?

Hi Dick, thanks for the reply.

In answer -- yes the # on the frame, inside the yoke is pn013xx.

This is a blue, 4inch Python that looks to be NIB, with a blue plastic box.

Any help in dating this python would be appreciated.

Don, it sounds like a fairly new one since you said it had a blue plastic box.
There is no published data after 1985, you'll have to call Colt to find out. Sorry I couldn't help.

Dick, thanks for the effort.

Can you give me a telephone number for "Colt"?

I'll post the DOB after I call. It may be helpful for someone else with a "pn" serial #.

dback68 & dfwheel,

Thanks for your feedback, I called COLT this morning. The DOB is 1994.

Hope this will be helpful for anyone else with a ser # close to mine.

Don

woodsltc:

How does the quality appear to you to be, on your 1994 Python-as I'm intending to possibly buy a Python made in about 1988? Is yours(Or, the Python that you are considering?)a blued gun? If so, are you satisfied that the bluing is of good quality? And, if you have any earlier model Python's, how does this newer Python stack up, in overall bluing and fitment quality? I'll appreciate your comments? Thanks!

Colt38,

My python is a blue, 4inch, w/factory hogue-style rubber grips and was NIB.

In regards to quality compared to other production years -- I couldn't say as this is my first Python. However, I do have several S&W's and I would rate the blueing and polish of my Python as superior. It is also very accurate and the timing is excellent -- as are most of my S&W's.

Good luck on your Python purchase. I'm certainly please with my first one.

Don
