6/26/19 - This is a near-mint Colt Python with scarce 2.5 inch barrel. Manufactured in 1970, this revolver comes with the original manuals and paperwork, as well as Colt box that is hand numbered on the bottom and matching to the gun. We have been told that that there is known faker of these boxes, and as this one looks nearly new, we aren't certain the box is original to the gun. The gun is all original, however, with 98-99% high-polish blue. There's minimal edge wear from being in the box, as well as obvious roll mark on the cylinder. The bore is mint, and the action is perfect. Flawless grips, as well.
