If it is a new design in any way, changed a spring or screw, it would have to be "approved" by the state. Gen 3 Glock is okay, gen 4 is not, for example.

Like Tobra says, any design change must be resubmitted to the state for acceptance. These can be non-functional, purely cosmetic changes. Many manufacturers have grown tired of this and simply do not submit their new models for approval. I would suspect this is the case with Glock, where it simply was not worth it to them to submit their Gen 4 for approval.

As far as the Python, it meets current acceptance criteria. That does not mean Colt will submit it for approval. If they do not, it will not be legal for sale in California, whether it meets all criteria or not. I cannot imagine Colt ignoring this market, so I would be very surprised if they failed to submit it for approval.

Not that simple. Every new firearm needs to go through a specific process in order to be sold in CA. Some manufactures decide not to deal with the hassle. When that occurs the new gun does not make it to the approved roster.

So, I'll rephrase my last post. I hope Colt solves its issues and they do what's necessary to make the approved CA roster.

Interestingly, the original wood grips are now worth, all on their own, more than the guns sold for new. Most shooters replaced them with Pachmayrs or some form of aftermarket wood grips. When I horse traded my brother out of his Python several years ago, it had the Pachmayrs on it. Fortunately he had saved the original wood grips. Apparently, most just tossed them. They are really not all that great of a grip. I wound up putting a set of Herrett "Roper" style grips on it, which I prefer on double action revolvers.

I agree that functionally, they're not much of a grip. But something about the last great american gun requires them or something like yours. If I need to grab something to count on, it's not likely to be a Python, its unwieldy, at least for 5'5 me with small hands. So it should be perfect in form.

My Trooper came with the original grips and I HATED them. I got some Pachmyr grips and it was a huge improvement.

I must confess....Pachmyrs adorned my M27 when I used to shoot a lot back when....with the originals back on it now....so I get that aspect . My M629 came with smooth wood unlike the typical wooden ones....and I like them, but haven't shot that one very much at all.

Nuthin' like good wood



BTW Rick....that Combat Commander is a good one too

Yeah, it's hard to argue with good wood. A couple of S&W's with the same Roper grips:



My all-time favorite, though, was the Goncalo Alves used by S&W in the '60's, '70's, and '80's:

Jeff, I have that exact Smith in the last photo. It is by far my favorite handgun. Period.

Yeah, I call that my "Pimp Gun". Nickel plated with goncalo alves grips... "Rooster" on the old Barretta cop show probably carried one...
