I can't believe i've only now found a colt forum!! i must have been asleep at the computer the last year or so.
I've always loved the colt diamondback. it was the first pistol my father gave me when i was 12. I still have the pistol and it still shoots better than me. i don't know much about the python series but acquired a 8 inch target model about five years ago. it's in pristine condition except it missing the ejection rod. i've looked through gun parts corporation to find a replacement but there seems to be a couple of different ones depending on the year it was manufactured. the serial number on this one is V961XX. can anybody help me out on this?
thanks in advance.

Your Python was made in 1980.
You can get the rod from Gun Parts Corporation or Brownell's Gunsmith Supply.

From Gun Parts, the appropriate rod would be:

Ejector Rod, Blue (From Serial Number 36190E And Up)
Ejector Rod, Stainless (From Serial Number 36190E And Up)

This is the "late type" rod which has a knurled head that's made in one piece with the rod.

The older rods had a separate head, and a totally different disassembly.

AS LONG as nothing else is missing internally, this should fix you up.
