I am looking at a Nickel Target Python from a private seller. It has a box, but no end labels, so in reality there is no box. I believe it does have papers and I know it is lettered. I know a good price is whatever makes both the seller and buyer happy and condition is everything, but what is reasonable as a high and low. I have stopped buying pythons because I believe prices have gotten too high, but I would be interested if the price and condition is right. I would not really classify myself as a collector, more of an accumulator, and I tend to hold on to what I purchase for quite a while. I also shoot my guns more often than not, but I am not a heavy shooter, and If I have an unshot collectors gun it will stay that way. Thanks for any input.

Did someone say not many made ?
Read the remarks section below.

Here's how people know that. Straight from the horses mouth.

What is the condition of the Target Python? Wooden or Rubber Stocks?

Several months ago (which equates to 20 Python years) I observed NIB specimens sell for about $2600 to $2800. It would take a whole bunch more for me to let go of one now. In your situation, it really depends on the condition.

exactly with no original box, condition is paramount, and as Kanatak mentioned, grips are $$ too. definitely worth pursuing around the 2k figure
