    Gold Lettering on 1978 Python?

    I am looking for a Python and have come across a 1978 Model that has gold lettering. The regular letting and horse design are done in gold. It is tastefully done and looks original, but I don't think Colt did this. The rep at Colt said it was likely done by an owner somewhere along the way. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Thanks

    The gold inlay was a popular modification a while back. It won't affect anything and can be removed, so I wouldn't let it keep me from buying a gun that I liked otherwise.

    I like the look of gold on blue and would view that mod as a plus.

    Thanks for the input. The price is right. I'm thinking I'll pull the trigger tomorrow...
