For a start, the grips are fakes.
Second the front sight pins appear to be nickel plated and probably should be blued.
Label font's and layout look way wrong.

At no point does the seller state it's original.

As it stands, these days any 3" Python should be considered a fake unless and until the BUYER gets a Colt Archive letter lettering it as an original 3" gun.
This is because there are so many re-barrel fakes around, even the seller may not know it's a fake.

And as above, if you're buying a high dollar Colt, especially a 3" Python a smart buyer gets his OWN Archive letter from Colt.
Along with fake grips, boxes, labels, hang tags, and manuals, counterfeit Colt factory Archive letters are appearing, complete with embossing.
