I found a Python for sale owner claims he purchased it in the 1960s for his Dad. I asked for the serial number 81XXXE was the reply.
According to Colts Data, this was manufactured in 1977, Time Warp?
$1100.00 no box or paper work, but unfired, so it's claimed, if claim to have purchased in 60s, is wrong, what about condition? These are the chances we take I guess.
Aeronnut04 I would not buy that revolver without giving it a very good inspection. If you are buying over the internet I run away from it. It would have to be 100% grade before I would pay that for it without all the trimmings. Good luck.
