    Colt Lew Horton Combat Pythons

    Do any of you Colt Combat Python experts know if nickle plated version of Lew Horton Combat Python was offered? One on Guns International
    site perplexing. Believe nickle plating was offered in 3" Standard Python produced earlier, but cannot find any definitive information on that
    finish being offered on Lew Horton Combat Pythons manufactured circa 1988. Thank You.

    I don't think the Lew Horton guns came in nickle they were stainless and blue. One way to be positive is call Lew Horton.

    The 1988 L.H. Combat Pythons were 3" blued. Around 500 of them.
    There are other permutations of 3" Pythons, but these were blued.

    KMK, the later Wilkerson 3" C.P.'s from 2004-5 timeframe came in matte stainless, and blued. And probably a BSTS example or two.

    Thank you all for your response. Got Email from Lew Horton Distributing this date. All Combat Pythons shipped to Lew Horton were blued.
    Current Nickle Combat Python on GI site would need Colt Letter to verify finish and order information.
