I found 2 nickel 4" Pythons, a 1969/75, and an early 80s?...

The earlier gun has nickel sights, and nickel front sight pins.

The later gun has blued sights with nickel pins.

Are these both factory expectations?

Thanks,

Hugh

Yes. In my opinion that is all to be expected and original. In my experience all nickel pythons have nickel front site pins. Nickel pythons before 1971 had nickel sites. Those after 1971 had blued sites. I have 2 1971 nickel pythons. I believe 1971 was a transition year. As seen in the photo, 1 of the 1971 pythons has nickel sites and one has blued sites.
