Python and Diamondback (Twins)???

Here is a Python I recently acquired at auction pictured with an identically engraved Diamondback (purchased as a set)... I have yet to receive the details from Colt pertaining to their originality/history but they came in a fancy display box (similar to the Snake Eyes) and they were manufactured in 1976…

I picked this good shooter 1978 V series 6-inch some time back but was waiting on nice grips to display it here. A local pawn shop find, I traded a Ruger Red Label 12 Ga. for it and some bills. The much improved grips came from wdhdoc. It's more fun to shop the Colt Forum Classifieds.


Here it is with the grips that came on it. Don't know whether they're salvageable or not. Perhaps Swamprat would know.

Here's my Python - I've owned it since 76" - DOB 1967. Bought it about 2 months after I got married - I've still got her also. I paid a whoppin' $100.00 for it. Took a wild boar with it in Tennessee, and carried it on many hunting trips, also a few times around the local jungles here - but thats another story.
