    Some questions about this Gunbroker snake

    Colt Python .357 4" 99% in Picture Box $.01 NR : Revolvers at GunBroker.com

    What year exactly? PY was used multiple years in the 1990's?

    Package is incomplete? If so, what is missing? Hang tag? Colt letter/other literature?

    Thanks everyone as always

    What makes you think it is incomplete? Keystone Arms listing. Bid with confidence. Marc's stuff is always top notch.

    You most definitely can trust this seller.

    Who said anything about mistrust? I trust that the gun and box are legit but SG, what makes you think it is in fact complete? Not that it's required but unlike some of Marc's other auctions nowhere is it mentioned as being "factory complete" or having "everything it left the factory with"

    Maybe that's something to ask the seller

    It may be just me, but I wouldn't rate the condition of that gun at 99%. With the few small scratches and the shooting wear to the back of the frame, I'd give it more like 96-97%. Anyone else?

    I'm in at 95% At best. However, you need to have it in hand and give it the ole mark 1 mod 0 eyeball to be completely sure. When you are talking just a few percentage points it becomes very subjective. Marc would answer any of your questions honestly.

    I would just PM Marc if you have any questions or concerns. I have dealt with him before and would do so again as he is a top-notch, class act guy.

    I think it's assumed that "percentages" are an incredibly subjective system. However, clear, well-taken photographs are not. Don't take the percentage as gospel; look at the pictures.

    Precisely why I made the post. According to those pics , if that gun is 99% then every one I own starts at 99.5%
