Recently purchased a 4-in. Python S/N V760xx at a pawn shop. It has major holster wear but otherwise is clean and tight. The lettering on the barrel and rampant Colt is gold-colored. I'm wondering if the gold lettering was a factory option or the previous owner had some custom work done. All replys are appreciated.

Somewhere in it's life someone used one of the gold filling kits on it. With a little acetone to dissolve the sealer first, you can then scrub the gold filling out the lettering.
