Just thought I would share some pictures of the newest member of the family. I "found" her at a gun show over the weekend and it was love at first sight.
The Python has always been a dream gun and I dream no more. My budget on the other hand . . . . . Ah, well. You know how that goes.

The Colt Python Hunter was marketed for one year, 1981. It was packaged in the Zero Halliburton case. Factory installed Colt/Leupold 2X extended eye relief scope, rubber Pachmayr "Presentation" grip, plain and orange insert front sight blades, Ebony handled cleaning rod w/ tip and brush, Colt screwdriver and allen wrenches were all included.
It has an 8" barrel and was honed, smoothed and assembled by the Colt Custom Shop and test fired for accuracy. Those guns that did not pass the accuracy test were reworked the first thing the next morning before any new guns were assembled.
These guns are about as good as they get and need no mod's or smithing. The trigger in this gun can only be described as perfect.
