I need to finance a "real" safe, so this is back up for sale.

$1500: Rare electroless nickel ("e-nick" or "coltguard") python with manual, box (flaps off, no tape). Importantly this has a machine-printed serial number end label stating it's E-nick, which the fake refinished ones don't. I've never shot this gun, but it has been shot in the past. Timing good, lockup good, action has been strip cleaned and molylubed. It's smooth. Minor surface scratches on the top-strap in front of the rear site. I couldn't take a photo of them; they are hard to notice unless you are vigilant.

UPDATE: it appears to be made in 1981, which seems to be the first year E-nick was offered:

Thanks CD!

Updated the original posting: I believe the DOB was 1981 which appears to be the first year that E-nick was offered.

The safe is being forklifted in today, so still looking to sell this.

I have a pristine 4" blued python I may list instead, if there is interest.
