YeHa, that be some pistola (3” S,S. Python)

Have to admit that I am a sucker for Colt* revolvers but this one takes the cake: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/847717545. Entry fee is getting on up there pretty good though. Guess I will have to just enjoy my old blued 4” Python, or break out the 3-5-7. I don’t worry too much about actually shooting them.

*Got a few of them Smith wheel guns as well.

did you look at the BIN price?

i dont think it will go for that BIN. that price is for the wet dream/fantasy price.

but for what the high price is now, thats not bad probably for a 3~5K investment

I love Colts. I have owned Pythons and they are a good shooting gun but I don't own any now. I let mine go when Colt quit making them and there was no support to keep them running. The action lockup takes a pounding really bad so they need service from time to time. Not many can fit parts now and no parts are made by Colt now.

Once the guys that are left die off then a python gunsmith will be very hard to find, and so will parts be hard to get.

I stick with the SAA, lots of smith's to work on them and plenty of parts right now. Just my opinion.

Well then. It is official: I am not cool enough to own a Colt revolver; that is priced way out of my league. I will stick to my MR73s instead.

I thought that Colt was restarting the line up of the "snake guns" again.

Is that the pistol John Booth shot Lincoln with and then some derp shot President Garfield and then another goof used it to shoot McKinley and a deranged muslim got a hold of it and shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand and then Jack Ruby borrowed it to shoot Oswald and in between, John Wayne slung it in ALL of his westerns until Clint Eastwood needed it for his Spaghetti Westerns???

I'm just curious as to the historic value of this amazing Colt.

I know I've seen it around somewhere.

For $75K, it ought to be hand delivered, like flown in on a chartered jet.

Some deep pocketed individual hit the BIN on it. I dare him to shoot it.
