    Do you want one that made in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's. They only made them to hold 6 shells. The late 60's were the best they made.

    Wish I had a couple (dozen!) too since they're pulling what a decent trap gun will cost you. Absolutely amazing the $$$$$$ people are paying for most Colts lately. And it's not like Pythons are rare or hard to find. You could buy 2 ANIB pre-lock, P&R .357 Smiths for what Pythons are selling for.

    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave

    I sold mine about eight years ago for $300.00. Still have the B = Square scope mounts if anyone has an interest in them. Make an offer. Ray

    Came back to edit to say the scope rings are also still attached to the mounts. I have mounts and rings.

    The pony on the grip, not the quality, makes all the diference. There are some horrible pythons around and for sale. A good one is great but the name does not say it all. Buy with care. I have 2 but choose not to sell either.

    I have 4 and all are the late 60's. All have had their trigger worked to by a factory tired gunsmith and they are sweet.

    The gun is for a friend of mine at work I sent him an email asking what year what size barrel etc. I think he doesn't care, he just wants a python for his gun collection.

    Thank you,

    Eric

    Why did I buy a 6" BTSS Python in the 70's? Why did I get a 6" (yes, 6") BTSS Diamondback .22 in the 70"s. Why are they still in my closet in their original boxes? I really don't know what they are worth but I bet they are worth more than I paid for them.

    I bought my first python back in 1989...Actually I went to the local gun shop my dad and I always go to and saw it in the case I asked the guy behind the counter what they wanted for it and actually they were selling it for someone and he said 375.00 I was only 17 at the time I called my dad right away and he called the storte and said to the guy I'll take it. It turns out a long-time friend of my dads who passeda way soem years ago...well is wife needed the cash. I made a great deal. I have only fired it about 100 rounds through it and the only regret I have is that I lost the original box for it. Checked on chuck hawks website and it was made in 1972. Just wanted to share a story with you all.

    Check your email.

    I have a Colt Python and am going to sell it. It's a 4" blued version that I bought a few years ago. I am thinning out my collection. This Python is close to 100%, and it has been fired a few times. I personally have put 20-30 shells through it. Attached is a photo which hopefully show its cosmetic condition. It is all original. Asking price is $950 plus shipping. Includes the plastic case shown. I will only ship to your FFL. It's a 1967 made gun - I checked it with Colt.

    The good old Pythons, the one I know best is from early 60's, have actions like polished glass, and run circles around the best S&W ever built.

    Sometime in the 80's Colt started building everything they made crappy, I don't think you could give me anything after 1990 that would equal ROSSI for quality, which is pretty low at best!

    I will chose a "V" spring colt over any revolver ever made providing it was made prior to 1980!

    And as far as a V spring Colt having to many parts? This parts list stops at 56 pieces!

    An S&W 586 lists 88 pieces in its assembly!

    And unless you have the heavier "N" frame you have A revolver that has A weakness that the "V" spring Colt revolvers do not have!

    Anyone out there know what that is?

    AL

    When My Dad as a Cop was doing Firearms training, the visiting instructor who was a shooter of a lot of note back in the 50's and 60's, had only one comment for the smart a$$, that asked what the real difference between a Colt "V" spring, revolver and an S&W was?

    The instructors answer was, " any Colt in his hand was worth another 10 points compared to a S&W!"
