I am trying to date a 6 inch stainless Python serial number T87104 but the look up doesn’t work... anyone have any thoughts or should I just call Colt? Thanks in advance.

It’s after 1985 using the proofhouse chart and I can’t find an online source of Information. I’d have to call Colt. Maybe someone has more recent chart on it.

I think it's '87-ish

The pocket blue book has the most complete serial list I have found, but they get weird with the T series organization. IIRC, the high T's in 80,000 range were '87-ish though.

Always can call.

I’ll call Colt tomorrow and let you all know the datapoint. Thanks. Picking up the gun this week too on a local deal.
The machining of the serial looks like anaconda serial numbering technique.

This is the first "T" serial number that I have seen with the dot matrix style. I would suspect it will be an early 90's gun IIRC that's when Colt started to use this style serial numbering. JMO D*

Just got off the phone with colt and they confirmed it is a 1990 python.

T87104 DOM in 1990? Wow. DOS would make more sense.
Figured by then it'd be a PN or something.

I've got T73000 range, with DOS of Jan '88

2 front sight pins ... basically a late 80's stainless. Careful when calling Colt for a SN check - they're not very accurate in the high T serial numbers.

And here's an even higher T serial number that was back to the stamped style.
