Well, either way, I thank you for posting it! I got to see twins of these fine guns last summer in Hays, Kansas at a dealer. He had one nickel and one blue, both 8", .38 spcl. Python Target guns. Magnificent! (Expensive!) Sad to say they were both still in the case waving good bye at me as I left. If memory serves, I think he wanted $1,000 each.
