Is $1150 fair for what appears to be an unfired 1978 vintage Nickel Python with 4" barrel? No box or papers and missing original grips.

Thanks.

To be honest, it sounds about $200 too high considering all the conditions. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I must have read right over "missing original grips", knock off at least another $100 down to $850.

No more than $900 in perfect shooting shape. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif <font color="blue"> </font>

Steve, should have been at the show, the guy next table over from me sold a NIB, 2.5inch nickel Python serial number E-98xx this morning for $1100. It was NICE!! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

As they said above, I too feel that the 4" , no box or "correct" grips is too high..............

Taking a quick look at GA (not an Auction Site) 4 inch Python asking prices are ranging from a low of $850.00 to a high of $1,850.00…

This is inclusive of 9 (1 Nickel and 8 Blue) guns… All have Python Grips and 3 are listed As New In Box. Those 3 have an asking price of $1,200; $1,500 & $1,850… The average asking price of the other 6 is $965.00 of which is the number to use for comparison…

Now throw into the mix that you can obtain Colt Grips for approximately $200.00, a box (non-matching, blue from Colt or Brownell’s) for another $40.00 and an owner’s manual (no charge from Colt)…

All things considered I’d have to say that their asking price of $1,100.00 without Colt Grips is considerably high and I would resume my search…
