Hello, I'm looking at a 1956 Python, #9xx! Does not have original stocks, some kind of target grip with big thumb rest on it now, real bummer.
The gun is in VG condition, very minor holster wear at the end of the barrel, and a couple of very faint scratches.
Bore and action is superb. No box or paperwork.

I know values are going through the roof, what's it worth?

Check Gun Broker...a few have sold recently.......

though all have had the correct stocks.....they ranged from $3750 for a beautiful redone gun to 12.5K for a 1xx gun in the box with the test target....

GOOD LUCK....RR

Yep I thought about bidding till I saw it was you and didn't want a bidding war. Was gonna go as high as 4 and figured you were gonna get it so why bid it up. Actually thought it would go a little higher than it did.
I was surprised myself. It's the finish I'm sure. I plan on someday down the rd getting colt to refinish it for him. At least I'm hoping 403 has got a long time home. Probably the cheapest I'd ever find one

Sorry but I'm going to be the Nay-Sayer. I don't think it is worth $4k without the original box or Grips. I would estimate it sells for around $2500-$3000 on Gunbroker in it's current state. Track down a set of grips for $500-$600 and it's a $3500 piece. IMO

Ok, so since this thread has started, I have to ask what you guys think. What would #3xx with proper grips and similar condition to above mentioned value at? I say $4k+. What say you?
