    I am pretty sure they do. I am on the Colt Forum as well and they have guys sending them back for refurbishing all the time. I have thought about sending my Diamondback in for a refinishing since its finish is about 40% gone.

    Yeppers they do it is pricey though. If I remember right 3-400 for the Royal Blue finish.

    But if you want it back factory fresh.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    My 4" blue Python was built in '72 and has only gotten better with age. I bought it in '72 (for $350) and have long since lost count of how many rounds I have put through it.

    I've had the original stocks on it, custom Herrett's, someone else's wood (don't remember whose) and Pachmayr rubber. For showoff, I put the Herrett's on it, but for shooting nothing, IMHO, beats the Pachmayr.

    Nice! The 1st gun I ever bought was a Colt Python 6 inches Stainless. I wish I still had it.
