Description:

Manufactured in 1956, the second year of production for the Colt Python revolver.

Many firearms enthusiasts and writers have described the Colt Python as "the finest production revolver ever made". It is fitted with a ramped blade front sight mounted on the matted vent rib and a frame mounted adjustable notch rear sight, grooved trigger, checkered hammer, and a pair of checkered grips with gold Colt medallions. Matching serial number "534" is on the yoke and crane, with "VP" and "J" on the left near the trigger guard. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
