I have a chance to buy a Colt Python.

The description:
This is a very clean pistol. The pistol shows no holster wear. The pics don't do this gun justice, the shine on it is incredible. The gun appears to be made in 1981.

He is asking $1,500.00

Is this a good price?

These days, that's a decent price for a bright nickel model in real clean shape.

If you get it, the first thing to do is get a nice set of Python wood grips. :)

Here's my 6" bright nickel model built in 1977. :cool:

Python prices vary based on configuration and year of manufacture.

However, they're all going up.

I got mine for a great deal, but like the others said, they aren't getting any cheaper. Here's my 6" high polished nickel and my 4" blued. :cool:

$1500 for a later model stainless steel Python (doesn't seem to have the yellow hue of nickel plating) and Pachmayr grip (granted it's Colt medallioned)...I'd say that's a bit high anyway. I'd put that gun at $1300 top. Moot point by now, but FYI.

Yeah, but they're going up all the time.

Get a 4" blued model. I know its my favorite configuration for sure. Its also generally the least expensive, as its the most common. :cool:

I'm not saying they're cheap, but you can usually get them for less than some of the other configurations.

I really like the 4", I'm not a huge fan of longer barrels.

The 4" blued is my favorite configuration as well. I don't own one yet. I'm still looking for the one.

My 6" '62,

http://i648.photobucket.com/albums/uu208/countrygun/IM002689.jpg

Cost me $750 2 1/2 years ago. Funny thing, in my area the 4" models run about 10-15% more than a comparative 6"

I like the balance of the 4" models.

I saw a thread today on the Colt forum about a LNIB with all the right tags,box and paperwork. Sold for 3400 and some change. Granted this was a primo example but looks like they are head for 4K soon. :shocked:

1981 is a bit late in the run for my taste, I'd be looking for an older one. With patience and $1500 you can get into an older 4 or 6."

Like I said, it depends on configuration and date of manufacture. Some do sell for that much and even more.

The older models are definitely better.

My Python looks exactly like the OPs pic. Got it for $800 several years ago. I would post pics myself, but I don't actually know where the darned thing is! :steamed:

Does anyone else ever "lose" their guns in their own home? Or is it just me?
