    DISASTER - Hand Etched Colt Python needing Restoration - OUCH!

    We just got this Colt Python in for restoration. As you can see, it has been completely hand etched. As a Colt Recommended Service & Restoration Center, we'll be restoring this Python back to its original, factory condition. Keep tracking our posts and we'll show you how the restoration process is coming on this gun;complete with videos and photos.

    It's an individual's attempt at "decoratively engraving" the gun himself.

    I've seen bubba do some incredibly awful things to fine firearms over the years. Some actually took some skill and forethought, even though the results were rarely attractive. This....well, this is just....sad.
