I'm curious and now have a bug.
I saw a snubbie Colt Python last weekend that was Gold plated. Priced around $1500.
It was funny at first, then it grew on me. It changed hands later in the show.
Now that I think about it, I may just want one.
If you do have one, did you have it done or did you buy it already done ?
I know you guys don't want to come foward and admit to having one, but I would really like to know.
After owning the gun pictured below, I kinda feel like it's the lonely gawdy gun in the safe and a Colt playmate may just be what it needs.
C-mon, you can admit to owning one. Tell me about it.
I would like to know the cost of Gold plating a complete gun. Anyone have any idea ?

I kinda like the looks of this one.The blue screws and sights probably sets it off,and that set of grips,,wow...how about a set of white,or blondish target grips?I seen a Python on GB that had a set of blonde target grips on a nickel gun.I almost went for it,but I don't care for the seller that much.

I take that back.It's a blue gun with blonde grips.
auction on GB is # 41389339

Manderson, thanks for the pic.
You didn't answer any of my questions though.
Did you buy it that way ?
Did you have it done ?
What was the costs to have it done ?
I'm curious as to why didn't you do the trigger & Hammer ?
Are you happy with the results ?
What is that 14k, 18k, 24K ?

Thanks, Jeff (GUNKWAZY)
Nice looking gun by the way.

I'm sorry, I was just surfing the internet to find a picture of one because I was curious also. This picture came from some German web site.

What I was really looking for was a highly engraved gold Python that was being sold about a year ago and was a special commemorative series. It was distributed by some heritage collector company. They were only making a few, and you had to place advanced orders. I can only assume they were all sold and the web site was removed because I can't find it anymore.

Next question....
Is it OK to (can you) Gold plate Stainless ?
Can only Cold/Hot drawn magnetic steel be plated ?
Hmmmmm.... ????

Thanks for the pricing by the way.

By the way, I'm having some custom stuff done to one of my Pythons. Should be ready in a week or 2.
It will be a one of a kind.
I'll post some pics when she's back.
Should be pretty damn cool when it's done.
At least I hope so. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
