I have a few Colt revolvers, but never owned any with a 2.5" barrel. I came across this Python built thirty-three years ago in 1975 the other day that stopped me in my tracks. After sweating out the auction, I was informed that I won the bid.

It's too nice for everyday carry, but I decided to get a Del Fatti holster when my build number comes up next summer. (yes, there's a 2 year wait)

I think every once in a blue moon it would be fun to carry a "old school" classic revolver if you're stepping out on the town.

There is just something special about great American gunsmithing!

8/22/08 Update:
It finally arrived and after a bit of Flitz polish I snapped these this morning.

That thing looks awesome. That's truly old school. Let us know how it shoots if you ever decide to shoot it. :thumsup

NK, YOU HAVE TO shoot a Colt Python! They are arguably the silkiest smooth actions that can be found in a revolver. If you don't have a heart to blast away with .357 loads, you can take it easy with .38's, but these guns are shooters.
