Since I learned about the prewar King conversions, I have been struck by how much the Python, introduced in 1955, resembles the King conversion.

Here is a picture of a King conversion from their 1940 catalog:

Now here is an early version, developmental version, of the Python (from Wilson’s The Book of Colt Firearms):

Interesting, don’t you think?

Here’s a downloadable, high rez, 80-page, 1940 catalog for the King Gun Site Company: (I posted this over on the S&W Forum also, but thought I’d put it here as well for those who don’t visit both sites.)

Here are a couple of the pages:

I downloaded the 80 pages as about 40 jpg pix. There’s probably an easier way to do it, but my way, cumbersome as it is, does work.

The site looks incomplete, and I hope bfoster keeps building it…
