    I have a chance to buy a Colt Python.

    The description:
    This is a very clean pistol. The pistol shows no holster wear. The pics don't do this gun justice, the shine on it is incredible. The gun appears to be made in 1981.

    He is asking $1,500.00

    Is this a good price?

    These days, that's a decent price for a bright nickel model in real clean shape.

    If you get it, the first thing to do is get a nice set of Python wood grips. :)

    Here's my 6" bright nickel model built in 1977. :cool:

    Python prices vary based on configuration and year of manufacture.

    However, they're all going up.

    I got mine for a great deal, but like the others said, they aren't getting any cheaper. Here's my 6" high polished nickel and my 4" blued. :cool:

    $1500 for a later model stainless steel Python (doesn't seem to have the yellow hue of nickel plating) and Pachmayr grip (granted it's Colt medallioned)...I'd say that's a bit high anyway. I'd put that gun at $1300 top. Moot point by now, but FYI.

    Get a 4" blued model. I know its my favorite configuration for sure. Its also generally the least expensive, as its the most common. :cool:

    I'm not saying they're cheap, but you can usually get them for less than some of the other configurations.
