    Normally I never buy any blued revolvers, I stick to stainless for the only reason, I'm afraid of hurting the finish. Unfortunately, python's in my area are very uncommon and today at my local gun show I saw this; the price was okay, and according to proofhouse its born date is 1975. Overall I feel it's in nice condition for it age with little handling marks. The prior owner told me he’s had for 30 years now and it's time to sell. After 10 minutes of negotiations, I finally walked away with it. One day I will get my stainless python I've been looking for, but this one will enjoy its new home in my safe. Sorry for the crappy photos, I need to get a light box one of these days. Still doesn't hurt to show it off :)

    Very nice find; a 6" barrel blued Python is one of the most beautiful and classiest looking revolvers of all time. Enjoy your new aquisition.

    Purdy, purdy. Colts don't normally speak to me, but I do like the Pythons and Anacondas. Darn my champagne tastes.

    Hello friends and neighbors // Nice snag/save,, glad it found a good home,.. those Medallions look outstanding for a 1975 it must be dang near new.

    Seeing someone shoot a Pyton for the first time is an experience well worth sharing.

    Don't use the SS polishing cloth on it.:D

    congrats, on a nice snake.
    I have a 4" Python, it's the most accurate handgun I own.

    I did that once, a lead removal cloth after a few brewski's. Not pretty.

    I have an old early 60s vintage 4 inch. Great carry gun... Although it has been sitting around the safe for most of the last 10 years or so...

    I personally think the Pythons look better blued than stainless, IMHO. Great looking piece!

    The blued Python is a classic. The royal blue finish was a Colt standard for pythons. Great catch.

    I also prefer blued guns.

    Very nice looking Python with second generation grips. Check out the Colt Forum so you can find more folks to make drool.

    You know that stainless guns get scratched just the same as blue ones......they just don't show it as much....:)
