Another buy from today was a Colt Firearms catalogue with pictures of the introduction of the Python Hunter and the introduction of the Colt Python in .22 LR & .22 Magnum.
Very cool pictures. When I get around to doing some more phots, I'll shoot some of the .22 Magnum Python with 8 inch barrel.

I nearly had a heart attack when I read the title of this topic!!! Yes, the rimfire Python is probably the Holy Grail of Colts. The only picture I seen is of the 8" gun pictured in the '81 catalog. It looks like Colt made at least that one prototype and if it ever were to come up for auction, I'm sure it would bring in 5 (or possibly more) figures.

I keep checking Christie's, Sotheby's and Butterfield & Butterfield's but it hasn't appeared yet (not that I could afford it!) /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
