5\" Colt Python- Fact or Legend?

Hello, again--

Several years ago I heard rumors that Colt had made a special run of 5" barreled Pythons for a distributor (someone like John Jovino, as I recall). Is there any truth to this, or was my dealer blowing smoke out my ears? If it is, has anyone got details and pics of one? I've found the five-inch barrel length in blued steel flavor ergonomically ideal for me, in the larher frame sizes from that other manufacturer, the one down in Springfield. Name escapes me.

I ask this, as I was just reminded of the California Custom Combat Python in 3" that was also a special run for someone.

Regards,

Sam

It's entirely possible.

Colt will make about anything you can pay for, and different barrel lengths are fairly easy.

Often custom runs are made and few people ever hear about them.

I've never heard of a 5" Python, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Never heard of and never seen a 5 inch barreled Python. I have heard of and have seen one 3 inch barrel Python.
