    First Generation Python - 1959

    I had to post pictures of my Grail Gun -- A First Generation Python from 1959. It is in excellent condition for its age -- some minor issues with the finish but nothing major and all visible in the pictures. It was in desperate need of a good oiling.

    Timing and lock-up are absolutely perfect. Now I need an original era box!

    If that thing ain't a feel good gun, then I don't know what what one is.

    A beautiful Python. I would refer to it as an early Python since I am not aware of any 'generations' of Pythons.
    Members, please correct me if these guns (Pythons) are in different generations.

    Maybe we can settle on "very early". It is the lowest numbered Python I've come across in person.

    I agree that there are no "generations" of Pythons. Many people use the term when referring to the different grips that came on the gun throughout its production. They really should use the term "type."

    First type, first generation - who cares! What you have is a FIRST Class 4 digit Python, beautiful revolver. Hang on to that.

    Very nice.

    I refer to these, as a group, as "50's Pythons", which are all 6", blued, with 'first type' fully checkered stocks, and are 4 digits or less SN's.
