Looking to sell or trade this nice 1961 4" blue python with its gen 2 stocks and finish along with it's brown leather drop holster for a 1965 Colt Python in any barrel length. Timing and lockup are amazingly tight for a 59 year old python. This is C&R eligible and i would ship from my C&R to yours or your FFL. This python has very minimal wear marks but some minor light pitting but I did try to capture them - no scratches or scuffs and even though it comes with a holster I do not think it rode in one much. No wear on the high points. Screws all in excellent shape. PM me if you have questions or need more info.
Cash price NOW $2600 plus shipping with holster
Thanks for looking.
K

Bump any 65s out there? Would pay a $500 additional if it dates to my birthdate.

For anything after 1985 you need to call Colt. They will only tell you the year of production over the phone. For any other information you need to write to the Colt historian.
