Stainless steel I frames

Did Colt ever make any stainless steel Python ejector heads?

No.
By the time they started making stainless Pythons in late 1982, they'd long since gone to the New Style ejector rod system that has the knurled head and ejector rod made of one piece.

The Old Style rod heads were made in bright Royal Blue and bright nickel, and "possibly" in "Royal Coltguard" electroless nickel.
Colt used a satin electroless nickel they called "Coltguard". Only the Python got a bright polish type called "Royal Coltguard".

I'm not sure about the periods of Colt using "Coltguard" and the old style rod head, I "think" that by the time "Coltguard" was available they'd already gone to the New Style ejector system.

But, in any case, there were no stainless ejector rod heads.
