The Colt Python is a double action, large frame handgun chambered for the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge originally developed by Smith & Wesson. The Colt Python was first introduced in 1955 as Colt’s top-of-the-line model and was originally intended to be a large-frame .38 Special target revolver. As a result, it features precision adjustable sights, an exceptionally smooth trigger, solid construction, and plenty of extra metal. It was never intended to be the object of continuous heavy pounding of magnum ammo. Pythons have a very “muscular” and businesslike appearance. A full barrel underlug, ventilated (actually, lightened) rib and adjustable sights combine to give the gun its unique look. Pythons are available with 2.5 inch, 4 inch, 6 inch, and 8-inch barrels. The 6-inch model is the most popular, and the 8-inch model is intended for hunting.
This gun is unfired, but the cylinder has been turned. NO Colt Box, but comes in zip pouch. Gun was Manufactured in 1979.
