Description:

The Colt Python was invented to be the top of the line model in Colt revolvers. Originally designed to be a target revolver in .38 special, these revolvers gained wide recognition in most gun circles due to the use of all hand fit parts allowing for a supremely accurate and robust revolver. Almost immediately, the Colt Python found popularity with the likes of competition shooters and law enforcement. Includes a matching number Colt two-piece "woodgrain" box, hang tag, bore brush, original test target, and "Handling the Handgun" pamphlet.

Rating Definition:

Excellent overall, retaining 97% plus original blue finish with light handling marks concentrated around the leading edges, and a light cylinder drag line. Grips are very fine with some light dings and scratches and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. Box is fair with numerous tape repairs and some scattered peeling.
