Re: Colt Python 3\" BBL

Good advice above. One must be VERY careful when about to spend the "BIG BUCKS" for something questionable.
Years ago in our shop we used to swap and add or remove barrels for most all brands of guns, in fact across company brands, like Rugers, Smith and Colt, "Smolts", "Cougers". Most all gun shops back in the 70's and 80 s were doing this. We even made up 'pistol Pacs', ala Dan Wesson, a Python , with 3 or 4 barrels in the "kit", 2 1/2, 4, 6, and the 8, and would mount a scope on that one, yes, then Colt did come out with a 'Hunter', after how many "others" were made? Seems Colt always gets on the bus after the ride has started. Simple marketing.................................

Bottom line, if there is NOT the packaging (box with the end label ) or a current 'factory' letter, I for one would NOT spend LOTS, it would have to be a "deal"........
