I have looked at a couple 4" sts pythons and both of them seem to have fitment with the side plate. The gaps seem larger and the bottom portion of the plates almost seem to have been forced in. My 6" sts does not exhibit this, nor do any of my blued pythons. Is this pretty standard for an 80's sts gun, or a sign that they have seen better days? BTW this is the only place on both of these pistols that looks "off", the remainder of both revolvers looked immaculant.

You sure a prior owner didn't try to "fix it" by exposing the innards or worse attempting to disassemble the gun? Never heard of loose or ill-fitting Pythons, especially the side plate. Sounds odd..... I wouldn't buy either without a thorugh check on that.

Not on my 4 inch stainless python.

Why do you think after seeing " a couple" stainless pythons with possibly messed with side plates that this is indicitive on an entire decade?

I would not come to that conclusion.
