For the first time in a while my local gun show has turned Colt. Over the last couple of years have been seeing fewer and fewer Colts being sold, primarily revolvers. Today I came across a number of private sellers unloadeing some of their goods for my benefit. I have already picked up a Mint Condition Commando and a good condition 1st issue Cobra. I came across a 1975 Blued Python 4" barrel. I would call it near mint condition, with finish about 90-95% except for a few very small scratches around the hammer. Those are the goods. The bads are, no box, original grips are not with it but Colt faux pearl grips instead. Lastly the cylinder slide has turned a plumb color and is lighter than the rest of the blue. The seller seems to be firm on $1500. I almost bit the bullet and bought it but my senses got the better of me and I wanted to check with the forum. It would be my first Python to add to a fast growing collection. Thanks for the input.
