Anything specific, Jason?  Otherwise there are several aftermarket listed on eBay.

Are you looking for original factory grips of after market? If factory, the ones used until 1961 were fully checkered and the ones after 1961 were checkered below the medallion. Both styles used silver medallions.
Please let us know what you are after. I may be able to help you out.

Thank you very much. I am looking for grips that would have come with the gun from the factory. I think (though I don’t know for sure) my gun is mid 1960’s .. ???

TIM:H11;
I have a set of those grips that I would sell. Send me a private message with your e-mail address and I can send pictures. If you let me know the serial number of your OMM I can look up when it was made.

Check here for a production year under officers model:

https://proofhouse.com/colt/

Then check here for which grips are correct:

http://www.coltfever.com/site/mobile?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.coltfever.com%2FOfficer_s_Model.html#2956

I personally purchased grips from the Thailand guy on eBay, and  very happy with them. Can't really tell the difference from factory, at least not enough to get you disqualified at the line in DR!

Hope this helps!

Concerning proofhouse;
If it's a .22 OMM you look under Officers Model. If it's a .38 OMM you look under Trooper. Colts are just so much fun!!!

Well that helps a bunch. It’s chambered for 38 Special so.. 1961 production according to that tip. Thank you.

This website lists some odd things for my gun in comparison to the other links posted.

https://www.colt.com/serial-lookup

Mine is 930XXX and I get different results with the different links.

I have sent you a p.m. Mike, as I am needing some help identifying what grips I need for my Colt officer also.

Hey Jason!

My OMM is a 921XXX, and I get the same thing back from the Colt.com lookup. Colt used the same serial number across multiple models, hence the issues and multiple returns. It's a mess. Rest assured, yours is definitely a 1961.
