For sale is a Colt Python with a 6 inch barrel stainless steel finish 100 % NEW IN BOX (NO DRAGLINE). $2,695.00 shipped or $2,650.00 face to face.

I learned something today, after offering some Pythons here on Calguns in the past they always had to be shipped to an Cal. F.F.L. and transfered to a LEO because of finish and barrel length. After doing some research and calling a few cali. gun dealers it was confirmed that a 6 inch barrel stainless Python can be shipped legally into Cali. to an F.F.L. dealer.

I don't believe the one you have pictured can be legally brought into CA and
sold to a private party(non LEO)--despite what you have been told. Pete

Are you sure because i talked to a gun dealer in Cal. and he said that the only Python that was legal to be shipped into Cal. had to be an 6 inch barrel stainless steel.

Is this a Stainles Steel FINISH? Or is this Python actually Stainless Steel?

This is a true STAINLESS STEEL Python.

You can call any of these dealers and they will tell you that the only Python that can be shipped into Cal. lagally is the 6 inch barrel STAINLESS STEEL Python.

Call any of these Cal. dealers http://www.usfirearms.com/pages/dealerlist.asp?st=CA&sort=CITY

VERY nice! I didn't think Pythons could be shipped into CA either but, sounds like you did your homework (I'll have to do mine because if you're correct, I can expand my shooter-grade SS snake search outside CA). Good luck with your sale!

The only Python that can be shipped to California is the 6 inch Python Elite (model no. I3060CS) in stainless steel. What you have is not an elite. Your model no. is I3060, no CS at the end.

HavaJava, i asked every Cal. gun dealer if it was just the stainless steel elites and everyone told me that it just had to be a 6 inch barrel stainless steel Python with stainless steel finish but with that said i will call tomorrow to make sure and if this Python can not legally be shipped into Cali., i will pull the sale.

Go to the CA DOJ website link below and select Colt then click the FIND button. In the bottom of the list is the model no. I3060CS.

I3060CS Python (silver) / Stainless Steel Revolver 6" .357 Magnum 7/24/2010
Right from the roster.

Now the question is, what shows on the Dealer Drop-down Menu for a Colt Revolver?

It may not show the CS. Things like that happen.

If you ship the box separately, this becomes the CS model.

THIS IS NICE!!!

HavaJava's right, sorry guy's but it looks like the only Pythons that can come into Cal. legally would have to say MODEL-I3060CS.

If this Python can not legally be shipped into Cali., i will pull the sale.

Now that its been withdrawn, maybe this thread can be moved to the Handguns forum and we can ask how in the world you came up with the asking price. I purchased the exact same model at TriCity in Fremont in Sept '89 for under $600 out the door and have kept it in the safe since. It would be great to think its now worth over $2500.

Is this for a pair of pythons?

Not that simple. You will have to engrave the word Elite beside Python on the barrel. Assuming you have access to the correct font style.

If you ship the box separately, this becomes the CS model.

THIS IS NICE!!!
