    Is this a Python?

    It says Python on the barrel. But says Ruger Speed Six above the trigger. It is parkerized. It has a 2 1/2" barrel and a sweet trigger.I was planning to buy it, but was wondering if it was a Frankenstein. Thanks for any help.

    That is a Ruger frame someone has grafted a Python barrel onto. A Pythger maybe??

    Rugers & Colts = Cougers
    Smith and Wessons and Colts = Smolts

    Definitely not a python,you still got the ruger frame and internals only difference is the barrel,so I personally wouldn't pay more than what a Security Six is going for

    Any reason to do this?

    I cant imagine any real benefit. I would much rather have two separate revolvers.

    Many thought so at the time, the Python barrels have a well known (and deserved) reputation for incredible accuracy.

    don't buy it, no way of knowing how stout the connection between barrel and action is, not to mention with the way the front of the barrel is higher than the rear sight you will never get any accuracy out of it

    Many times the custom barrel installation was part of a package that included an action job AKA a nice polishing of the internals and chamfering the cylinder etc. So it could actually be a decent deal and a sweet buy if the price is right. Can you shoot it before you purchase it?

    Sometimes they were just set up and slicked up for target wadcutter ammo though.

    Chris, I would bet this gun was built before you were born, what is your experience in telling the OP not to buy? There are a lot of high quality, yet freaky custom guns out there.

    I have shot it before and it is pretty accurate. I never paid attention, but as I was not thinking of purchasing it. I have talked to the gunsmith, who did the trigger job on it, and he offered my buddy $500 for it. He said it was not a problem, that it was good job frankenrevolvering it, lol. I love the trigger on it, it is sweet. I am going to talk him down a little and buy it. It is one of my best friends selling it and he is doing it to help his father pay his medical bills, so I will probably overpay a little. But, this will be one of the times I do not mind. Thanks everyone
