    Pythons, like "N" frame Smiths, are great thumpers in addition to great shooters.

    I had 2 4" blued snakes and 1 6" SS I bought new in 1983,the Blued guns were used and I paid 350.00 for,new ones were running around 450.00 at the time,the 6" was $681.00 in 1982.Alas I sold them way before I ever thought that Colt would discontinue them

    The Python was a favorite weapon of the Florida Highway Patrol back in the day and they even issued some to their troopers.

    There was a special run of presentation grade 6" stainless steel guns produced.

    I still have my original 1978 6" Python in Nickel with the original box. It was the very first firearm I purchased. I changed to Pachmayr rubber grips because the original Colt wood ones ate into my hand badly. I tried Philippine wood grips, but they were too big for my hand. The rubber grips work perfectly in my medium hands. The Python still shoots like a dream.

    I think they look good also. I can not tell the difference between these grips to the Colt Factory grips.

    Looks very good.

    Does anyone know if Colt will still work on their older products? I called them almost five years ago to inquire about sending my '67 Python to them for repair of a "timing problem" and refinishing, but I never followed up on that.

    Looks classic!!! Which, of course, it is a classic. Much better with the wood grips than the others that were on it.

    A friend of mine sent one of his in to them last year, I assume they still would, but you know what they say about assuming.

    Best to call them again 800-962-2658.

    I have always said that the Python was the best looking revolver ever made. A buddy bought a 6 inch nickle one in about 1978, and I have wanted one ever since. I much prefer the action on the Smiths I've owned, but nothing looks like a Python. I remember reading years ago that a fellow with the Texas DPS, Reeves Jungkind, could make a Python trigger feel like a Smith trigger-talk about perfect. Well, anyway, Pythons have always been out of my price range just to "have", you have a great gun there to enjoy.
