    Can you take more pics? I'm confused. Does your barrell say python hunter? Can I see pics of the case and tools? I think they were made in 1980 with a K prefix and 5 digit serial #. Leupold scope with colt leupold medallion . Red ramp sight. Gold medallion grips.

    Enlarging the pics helped. The rear sight appears to be flat which was changed in the late '50s. However the topstrap where it meets the barrel doesn't look like a Python. Given the serial number is 4 digit I think the OP has a "Model 357" or Trooper with a Python barrel.

    Can you chamber a .357 round?

    Take off the grips and see if it has a Trooper MKIII or Python action.

    FWIW ...gurney browns "colt python" book shows some information on the hunter models ....his Seven Serpents book also has limited information on the hunter model......in looking at these i noticed his books conflict on the approx # produced ...they python book says 1500...the seven serpents says 2500
