    Looks good. My partner carried a 6" Python all the years we worked together.

    No, I got it used and it has had rubber grips on it since the early 80's. It shoots great with the rubber grips but my shirts like to stick to them when I carry it concealed. So I decided to cough up the bucks for some wood grips and I am glad I did.

    I have a S&W Model 19 that I got new in 1980. It took a beating riding in a duty holster for 17 years. I will post pics after it is redone. I got some replacement grips last month, now I just need to find a really good gunsmith to redo the bluing.

    Very nice gun btw.

    Got to love a wheel gun. They dress up nicely.

    Give some thought to sending it back to S&W - they do nice work on freshening up the works and the finish.

    Always wanted one but even when I was a peace officer, they were considered expensive. I fired one on the range one day and it was tuned with target trigger. It was like glass but too rich for me. Back then, the CHP carried the 6" model as standard issue! Ahhh, those were the days'...

    Gotta love a Python.

    I have three "E" models a 4 inch blue, a 6 inch blue and a beautiful 4 inch nickel combat magnum with original three dot sights. I take them for a spin every once in awhile when I am home and they are always a pleasure

    For some reason, there is nothing quite like the older model Colts and S&Ws. You've gotta love 'em.
