    3'' Nickel Python

    Congratulations! It looks absolutely pristine. Maybe factory test fired only by virtue of the burn rings on just three cyinders.

    I think the 2 made were Factory Bright Stainless. Those 3" guns make the 2.5" ones look like a bastard child to me.

    I’d rather be in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.

    Only one letters as bright stainless and it was in the Wilkerson run of 25 round butt Combat Pythons made in 2004. It has been through my hands and it is tainted to say the very least. If you ever see one in bright stainless run away as fast as you can.

    Lumberjack,
    Mine is serial number K582xx, knowing that only 23 where made, what's your experience as to why the numbers are so far apart?

    WOW! Very scarce 3 inch in nickel. If I remember correctly the last couple went for 20K. I will be curious about the current landscape. Thanks for sharing!
