    if i read that serial number correctly as 1050 (1956) ....that makes it a very desirable 2nd year gun and depending on condition, originality and package a very valuable gun.....other than condition and originality assessments the only other information that can be gathered would come from a colt archive letter

    If it's a 4-digit gun it wouldn't be a Hunter model, would it? I thought the Python Hunters were 1980s models.

    first off its not a old 4digit python....appears to be or have been a Hunter......they are rare in good condition.....they came with a 2x leupold scope (not likes shown)...came with a special aluminum case....8" barrel ....many had finish problems from being stored in foam lined case (rusting and pitting) ...were produced in 1981....came with black colt rubber grips with gold medallian target style (not like your pic)...should have a VAxxxx type serial number...abut 1500 made...factory scope would have been attached with 2 special scope bases that attached individually in grooves in vent rib(not like the pic)
