So I'm watching AuctionArms,this Colt Python Nickel 3inch new in box from a seller in Fl. with no feedback,first time listing and just joined,and the bidding is over $10,005 with 10 minutes left! Am I missing something or are these guys a little crazy bidding on this gun? Did Colt make a 3inch Python Nickel and I'm wondering if this gun is really New in serial numbered box? Has to be Something to see if indeed it's real! Oh,forgot to say, No Pics!!! Looks like a member here is bidding!

Odds are VERY slim it is Legit. I would bid $15,000 as a feeler and if it were legit and truly NIB $20k.

I was the second highest bidder and voluntarily allowed the winner to outbid me when I was sent a warning email by the gunauction website. They specifically told me not to pay for the item if I won it until I saw proof of the gun. I also just received an email from the seller with pictures from a 2007 auction on the same site. She was asking me to send payment of $1900 and the gun was mine. Said her husband was in the hospital and she was with him when I asked for a specific photo of the gun with a prop in the background. Amazing the scams that are out there.
