Whaaat........no pix?? Shame, shame
I finally got a Colt Python .357mag 4in Royal Blue! DAMN, I've wanted one of these things since the 70's. I couldn't ever afford one. I found one at my local fun shop because the owner is selling his personal weapons. He gave me a GREAT deal on this one. I looked up the serial no. and found out this gun was made in 1967. It has a little holster wear but for a 40 year old gun, it is in great shape. I replaced the small original grips with some Excaliber oversized fingergroove Rosewood w/Colt logo. It feels and looks SWEET!
I am going to the range tommorrow to see how this baby shoots. I can't wait!!! Needless to say, "I'm Happy as.......you know"!

Congratulations, you lucky dog! A mint condition 4inch Python is one gun I'd love to get this year. Let's see a pic.
Hey Thedr I hope you got a good price on yours. I looked for over 2yrs for a 4" barrel model. Best I could do was $800 beat all to pieces to $950 for one that was in fair condition but no box or papers and not a dime less. Crazy. I quit looking and bought an old S&W model 19-4 for $350 and love it. I got a 6" 1978 Colt Python I paid $375 for it and a box of shells. Bought it new.
Don't lose those stocks off your Python as they are worth about $150 to $200 bucks if they are in fair condition.

I got my Python for $700 and change. No box and no papers. I can't complain about the price ...at ALL! The new grips were $80. The grips on mine were the small ones. Not the oversized ones like on your gun. I will put the original grips in a box and save them. I called Colt and this nice lady answered and said she would mail me an original Python owners manual for free.
I will put the Python as my avatar shortly. I am inep as far as posting a picture here. I know ....you need a host and you do this and do that and everybody says it's easy.......What!!

From what I see over on the Colt site that is a fair price for one in good shape. I would have give that one guy $700 but he would not come down at all. Good luck with your new Colt as they are the best in my book.
Not much you can do about them big blows. Here in the swamp we just tie ourselfs to a plam tree with bottle of good Irish Wiskey and wait till its over.
Well guys, a funny thing happened today at the gun show. I went with the intention of buying a new S&W MP9, but of course always looking for those targets of opportunity. I ran into this at a really good price, in excellent condition, so I couldn't pass it up. The action and trigger are super smooth, should be a great shooter. I can always find more tupperware, but they just don't make them like this anymore.
$795 out the door. It was the best deal I've seen on a Python in a long time. You would not believe all the beat-up guns people were asking $800 and up for.
Good luck with your new/old Python Hberttmank. I wouldn't take less than $2,000 for it if I was you.
Thanks, guys. My lousy photography really does not do justice to this gun. The polish and bluing are outstanding. This will get passed down to my grandson one of these days.
I love my Pythons.
Everyone else is looking... this guy has FIVE cherry ones... lol
I'm not much in to wheel guns anymore but if I ran across a 4" Python and I could scrape the money up it would follow me home for sure.
Lord those are beautiful guns!
I would give a body organ for them fine looking Colts. Beautiful is all I can say.
