Default New Python acquisition!

I recently found this rare 2.5" electroless nickel Colt Python in a gun shop 50 miles from my home. I wasn't looking for it but it ended up finding me instead as I was walking out of this new store that hadn't been opened very long and I happened to spot this Python in an unlighted gun display case......wow this was quite an unexpected surprise for me! So I jumped on this immediately! The price was right too...so I couldn't pass this deal up! Following are some pictures:

That's a beauty however, if it were mine I'd deep-six those rubber tire grips for some nice, custom wood ones.

Wow any snubbie Python is rare but E-Nic very very rare snubbie.

Anything under $3K is a deal, $2K a steal

Congrats!

A NIB sold on Gunbroker two months ago for over $19,000 on a no reserve auction.
They are very rare and pull serious money these days.
Great find!

Wow I am jealous! I always wanted a python. Had to settle for an S&W for now.

Beautiful revolver.

Gorgeous piece, makes me want one but it sounds like these are way out of my budget. Take care of that beauty!
