    I inherited a Nickel Colt Python .357 with a 4" barrel. It was a 'Safe' queen for 15+ years and, while it was really a beauty, it was more gun than I 'needed' so in October 2009 I took it to a local gun show first thing on a Saturday morning.

    I had researched on Gunbroker and knew the value was upwards of $1,100 to $1,200. I walked around and after 20-minutes was approached and asked if it was for sale. I privately sold it for $900 and continued to cruise the show. 30-minutes later, I walked by a Dealers table and he had a $1,300 price tag on it.

    I was OK with that and used the $ to buy what I needed and would use - a EOTech for my M&P15 and a 9mm Walther P99 AS.

    Man, now that deal would have tempted me a lot!

    ..A couple years later and I am wondering what you would expect to sell a '78 6'' blued python with original beat up box for. I would call it as close to perfect as a fired gun can get. original grips, no holster wear, no scratches , just the normal marks on the cylinder from being turned...?

    Candidly, I question the pricing you see on Gunbroker. There are an awful lot of them for sale out there, and some of the prices just flat out seem unreasonable. Not sure if that's the best gauge of value; it's certainly a market indicator, but I'd more interested in finding out what some of the m are actually selling for.

    I have a 4" 1978 in the same condition that I stole for $1,200 recently. I would ask the same question with pictures on the Colt forum. I am guessing $1,500 or more for yours.

    I'd say it's worth about $300, but I'll give you $350 for it! (J/K!!!)

    Around here, if it's in truly mint condition, they're asking $1800+ at the shows. Haven't actually seen one change hands for that, but I bet it'd fetch $1600-$1700 pretty easily.
