Well now,
After Colt made their mind up to make a top quality target 357 magnum revolver, they wanted it to be special in every way.
They experimented with barrel lengths and new designs.
This one pictured below has a few different designs.
This one introduces the shrouded ejector rod and top rib to the barrel as well as a machined target front sight and some other machining characteristics that you can see the entire barrel length.
The frame is not rounded at the point where it meets the barrel like you find on the Trooper and 357 models.
The front sight is actually wonderful as the ramp part of it fills the rear sights opening perfectly.
This prototype is chambered in 357 magnum and is balanced nicely.

That Python has a really great profile. I'm not fan of vent ribs or full-lugs but do like ejector rod shrouds so find this prototype Python particularly appealing.
+1 -- I never liked the vent rib on any handgun! I also don't like full length under lugs. They seem silly. Thanks for posting pictures of this interesting revolver.
