I'm probably gonna regret this but I traded one of my favorite shooters for this. Since I'm not the type of person who can have a gun and not shoot it so I'm gonna pass this one on to someone who can. I would like to trade this for guns or guns + cash. I'm interested in high end sig pistols in 9mm, springfield emp in .40 or 9mm, milled arsenal ak's (especially a sam7r), performance center smith wesson revolvers (s&w 627 v-comp), a nice shooter grade colt 1911. I might be interested in other guns so feel free to offer. I will listen to cash offers too, but I'm mostly interested in trading. On to the python now. It was manufactured in 1979 and has the original box, colt instruction manual, colt letter, hang tag, colt screwdriver and envelope it came in, colt companion manual and the authorized repair station list. The finish is IMMACULATE, there are no scratches, holster wear or thin spots. The screws appear untouched. The bore is bright and shiny and the rifling is sharp. It doesn't appear to have but a handful of shots fired through it. There is just barely a hint of a turn line of the cylinder, the line hasn't even gone through the finish. The grips are original and in almost perfect condition, just a little bit of finish has flaked off on the bottom edge, no gouges, scrapes, scratches or thin spots. Feel free to pm or post in thread.
