Can anyone tell me what the Python Hunter is? Did they come from the factory with a Leupold scope, and about when were they made?
Thanks

Beaverislander,

If you're looking to buy one be careful, there seems to be a lot of these specialty Pythons out there that are either incorrect/missing accessories, etc. or just plain not what they are being advertised as, such as this one which is just a standard 8" with a Leupold scope not a true Hunter:

And check out this prior thread:

Whether this confusion stems from ignorance of low production Colts or dishonesty is hard to say.

Interesting that it came with a unique "Python Hunter" manual and not a regular "Python" one.

Calvin,
Thanks for the heads-up! That link was to the exact gun that I was considering. I think maybe I'll just look around for a nice 8 incher.
