    I think quality control is definitely part of it. Colt released 3,000 6" SS Pythons, all alike, all produced the same way from start to finish. Now...

    You and I have a lot in common - we both have 1970 Pythons and you have a picture of my gf's butt in your avatar!

    If you are patient you can get a much nicer 6" blued Python for a little under $2K. Anything over that is for the box and papers.

    A decent ss 4" just went for around $2.5k on GB. Maybe they will go down to below $2k, because of people expecting to get a new ss 2020 for $1.5k? ...
