The deal on my Combat Python I had for sale did not work out due to import problems into the USA by the buyer.
So sold the other python I had and going to shoot the three inch.
Here is the question,were can I get some speed loaders for this pistol.
Is there a difference in the type of loader for the early pythons,to the later models.

I agree. If it's unfired, pretty crazy thing to do. (IMHO)

If you have a rare, genuine factory 3" Python is new condition, you will take a MAJOR dollar hit with the first shot.

However, it's your gun, and if you want to shoot it, go for it.

Any speedloader that will fit any Python will fit ALL Pythons.
The only speedloader problem is on the original First Type, fully checkered grips from the 50's.
On these, the grips interfere with speedloaders.

There are a number of good loaders around.
I always use the HKS PY-A model.

Other people like the Safariland Comp-II.

It's strictly a matter of personal preference.

Horsegunner,

There shouldn't be a problem importing that gun into the states. Do you know what the issue was on his end?

He was not licensed to import under gun contol act of 1968.
And has to apply as a dealer I think.
So the Python will remain in my small collection for now.As a Safe Queen.Money in the bank or pass on to the Grandson.Going to send to Colt for a letter on the gun also.

You don't have to be licensed as an importer under GCA 1968 for the occasional importation of individual sporting firearms, only be an FFL holder. He should have been able to fill out the proper ATF form to get it through customs and then record its receipt and transfer it to the purchaser like any other pistol. Actually importing large quantities of firearms for sale is a different matter. For that you must be licensed as an importer, stamp the name of your importation company on the gun, etc.

But you're probably smart just to keep it anyway as factory 3 inchers are scarcer than hen's teeth. It will only appreciate in value.

I'm a descendant of New Brunswickers. You could always send it to me for "safe keeping" or claim that it's a family heirloom.
