This lot gives you the opportunity to bid on an iconic firearm, in the form of a Colt Python Target, Double-Action Revolver, chambered for .38 Special. The revolver is built on Colt's large I-Frame, and is finished in Colt's deep "Royal Blue", contrasted by rich factory walnut grips, adorned with the Colt crest. Additionally, the revolver comes with a desirable 8", full solid-underlug barrel, full top rib, and an adjustable rear target sight. The Colt Pyhton was introduced in 1955, intended for Colts "premium market segment". Supporting that claim - Firearm collectors and writters such as Jeff Cooper, Ian V. Hogg, Chuck Hawks, Leroy Thompson, and many more described the Colt Python as "the finest production revolver ever made", while official Colt historian - RL Wilson describes the Python as "the Rolls-Royce of Colt Revolvers". The revolver is marked in numerous locations, reading; Python Target - .38 Special CTG" on the left side of the barrel, "Colt's PT. F.A. MFG. CO. Hartford. CONN. U.S.A." on the right side of the barrel, "VA6299" on the inside of the frame, and on the cylinder swing arm, "38 SP" on the rear of the cylinder, and showing the bucking colt on the left side of the frame, and on both grip panels. This Python is a fantastic example, with a truly excellent double-action, tight cylinder lock-up, and a very-good bore. The revolver shows 98%+ Royal Blue finish, with only light handling marks. The walnut grips show the majority of the Pythons wear, displaying light scattered nicks. This revolver was manufactured in 1989, and qualifies as a Modern Handgun, FFL Transfer or NICS Background Check is Required. Serial Number: VA6299.
