Here is a Python I recently acquired at auction pictured with an identically engraved Diamondback (purchased as a set)...

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.

for it, looking for original wood ones now...close up and better photos to follow...
