I realize Colt isn't accepting any work for refinishing guns at this time. However, do any knowledgeable forum members have a rough idea what it would cost to have an 8" Nickel Python refinished in nickel? There are no pits, blemishes, flaws on the current finish. However, the 2nd owner had the nickel deglossed in 1983. Thanks in advance for your responses.

The price should be in their online Custom Shop Catalog, but off the top of my head it's in the $350-400 area, plus shipping both ways and if it needs any repairs to the lockwork upon dissasembly.

Depending on how bad it was "deglossed", you might be able to polish the nickel back to bright.

I would try some Mothers mag and wheel polish to try to bring the finish back.At this point you have nothing to loose and everything to gain.Refinish cost will be in the $400 range.JMO D*
