    I haven't seen one for sale in years, so I don't know what they're going for now days. Any advice from those who are closer than I am to the used Python market?

    Go to gunbroker and under the advance tab you can see 'completed auctions'. That will show you real, street selling prices, not book or daydream prices.

    Unless you don't like research and are willing to take a fast 1K from me,... ;)

    Depends on the condition if it has the original box/paperwork.

    Thousands of comedians are out of work and you guys are trying to be funny...

    For some reason, "completed auctions" options is not available, even though I am registered and I logged into Gunbroker...

    Blue plastic box, no papers, nice wooden grips purchased from Colt and the original black plastic grips. I'll swing by the gun shop tomorrow after work and get their advice on a consignment sale.

    I would say $2000 would be a ballpark figure provided the finish is not marred or flawed.

    There's quite a few colt fan-boys who are under the dillusion these particular guns are worth these previously posted prices, and I'm sure you can get it from them. Glad I'm not one.:barf:

    Just going by what I see at gunshows, I'd say a fair asking price would be in the 1500-2000.00 range, depending on condition, box, papers, etc.

    That's the prices I see at gunshows. Now, rather they get those prices is another question.

    It's not a dillusion if people pay it. And they do apparently.

    It's not what I said. It's a REALITY if they pay it. The dillusion is they think it's worth it. Wasn't too hard, was it?:p

    That means it's worth it to THEM. Maybe not to you, but it is to them.

    That's no harder. :D

    Reading comprehension. They probably offer classes for it at the local community college.

    "They probably offer classes for it at the local community college."

    They have college classes for Python Appreciation? That's great.

    I agree with the $1500-$2000 estimate (pending more details or pics of course.)

    P.S. - This is great, I'm stealing it: "I'll give you a picture of ten Pmags for it."

    I'd bet they have spelling classes too. :p

    Dillusion: Imaginary pickle?

    How much is a finely crafted and finished, hand fitted revolver worth?

    Pythons seemed to be priced fairly nice as compared to a Freedom Arms or Korth. Those would likely be the closest revolvers on the market in the fit and finish department.

    A vintage S&W model 27 could also be used as an example, and those aren't exactly inexpensive either for a nice minty one.

    Pad $1500 yesterday for a four inch blued model in 98% condition with no box or papers, and non original Herrett grips. I considered it quite underpriced. Shop had two six inch blued models for the same price. All three were on consignment from an estate.

    I don't think a boxless, paperless, original gripless, 98% blue is under priced at $1500.
