I have a question, or questions actually.
Can someone give a time line for the Python stocks ?
Such as, full checkered ran from 1955 to ?
2nd type ran from 19-- to
3rd type ran from 19-- to
I'm not looking for the later stuff, just the earlier stuff 50's through 70's.
Was different types of woods used like the S&W grips, or was it all the same ?
While I'm here with this, is there any years that the gun markings changed significantly ? Such as the barrel markings. I'm just looking for things that I can easily spot at gun shows.
As usual, thanks for all your help.

dfariswheel is "d" man who knows about the Python stocks. He gave a complete breakdown on them recently, but I can't find the thread. Maybe we can get him to do it again and maybe I will make a copy this time. Thanks Dick

Sorry, I'm moving and I'm just checking in from time to time.

Do a search from the first of the year, the stocks post is buried somewhere.

There is a general time line on Colt stocks, but there aren't definite start and stop dates. There was overlap as Colt used up the old styles, so there wasn't an actual cut off date.

OK, can't find it. I went back 10 pages and my eyeballs are melting out of my skull. That thread must be called by something weird, cuz I can't find it.
When you get done moving, let me know what it may have started as.

Thanks again, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)

Hi, Jeff! No, I'm not Dfaris - just another duffer. Another wrinkle for you - there's gold-ish and silver-ish medallions, too! What came on which, I don't know. I'd guess the gold were on Pythons, but I don't know for sure. QUOTE]Originally posted by GUNKWAZY:
