In 2007, I purchased this Python. I originally wanted a 4-inch model very badly, and had no interest in a longer barrel. This Python belonged to the brother of a NJ police officer my father worked with. The officer and his brother bought their Pythons in 1977. The police officer used his Python for PPC matches in the 70s. His gun was tuned by a gentleman at Colt. He told me his brother sent this gun to Austin Behlert to have it tuned. It has an Eliason rear, and a very small patridge front. In addition, it looks like the trigger has been widened. The action is beautiful. The owner passed away in 2007. The widow wanted $600 for the gun, and I bought it with the intention of having a 4" barrel put on in place of the six incher. I couldn't find a nice short barrel, so I decided to keep it as is. With the crazy prices Pythons are going for, I'm glad I got this one when I did. Just thought I'd share it with the group.
