Just purchased a Python, blued with a 6" barrel, for $1,000. Beautiful! The serial number is E15449. That's from 1969, right? And, any suggestions as to where I can get some original grips for it? It came with custom grips, but I'd like to have originals.
I love E model Pythons. I have a 6 inch blue, a 4 inch blue and a 4 inch nickel. Gunbroker usually has some advertised and Colt themselves may have some in a closet somewhere.
I will keep an eye out and see what I can find if you like.
Thanks, guys. I'll check out gunbroker.
That is a great price on that gun.
Yours would be a 1970 (serial numbers that year E6301 - E21200 total number made 14,900). You will need a Gen 2 target grip. They will have a "half-moon" under the colt medallion. Be careful buying grips because there is a ton of fakes out there. A good set of stocks will cost you around $200 and a good source is coltforum.com.
I have no idea on where to find original grips but congratulations on a great find.
