Hi Guys, can someone please help me with determining the Born On Date of a Colt Python I have in my possession ? It's a 4" blued, serial number is K436XX. Also, does anyone know if this came with the rubber grips it's wearing or were wood grips originally fitted ? Thanks in advance, Shoodaddy

In 1981 Pythons weren't shipping with rubber grips.

Rubber only appeared sometime after the introduction of stainless steel, and even then rubber on a blued Python was not seen until the later days of production.

It's not at all uncommon for people selling Colt revolvers to "rob" the wood grips and replace them with something else.

Thanks Guys, Great, now to find original grips and not lose our shirts in the process. The gun dedfinitely deserves originals as it is about 99%. Oh well, maybe I'll stumble upon some. Thanks again, Shoo
