I think you all but stole it if it's never been fired. Your date sounds about right.
Congrats on a very nice find.

Your gun was made right in the middle of the 70's, 1975 to be exact.

Your conscience should bother you, go back and give the guy another 200 smackers!

E85XX would be 1970 production.

E85XXX would be 1975.

A 1970 production new in the box Python for $600? A man in a blue uniform has some nice silver bracelets for you to wear! That was a steal!!!!!

Well, again, I bought it froma friend who has had it 4 yrs..he has two other Pythons that he shoots, and wanted someone to have it who would shoot it. However, it is so nice, I'm kinda reluctant to do that. And I gave him 2 days to change his mind..he asked $600 for it, and i tlokd him I thught it would be a good buy at even 800, but he just wanted to recoupe the money he had in it. Thanks for all the imputs on the date. Hiker <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by azhiker:
