Picked up on trade a stainless Python from late 80's but the hammer has been bobbed. Know of anyone who could repair/replace one of these? Nice clean gun with no issues.

By far your best option is to send it in to Colt.
Colt "probably" still has hammers and they're the real experts on Python repairs.

There are few others I'd trust with such a valuable gun, and none of them are likely to have a hammer. They'd want you to supply one and stainless Python hammers are pretty much unavailable.
When dealing with Colt's especially Pythons a BAD move is to take it to a local gunsmith. Almost none of them today have any idea of how the old Colt action works, and you run a good risk of getting the gun back with other problems.

I'd contact Colt about this.
Info is on their web site:

Colt's Manufacturing LLC

Thanks I will try Colt, but it will probably take forever if they are behind so much. As I only have about $500 in it would hate to mess it up.
