I agree.

Its not just the Pythons, but many iconic handguns have gone crazy from a value standpoint. Look at the old Colt 1911s and Browning Hi-Powers.

I feel the 39 is just as iconic as those two, yet prices have not really budged much. Maybe they will go up in the future, but it is strange. Graqnted, I got an incredible deal, but these pistols still change hands for $500 or so in great condition. The steel framed 39s have gone crazy, but only because they're so rare.
