I am a noobie here and joined this forum to help me learn a little about the Python before I went ahead and searched one out to buy. I have been wanting one all my life but always seemed to find something else to purchase instead. Well, I did it this weekend at a local gun show. I purchased a NIB 6", Royal Blue, Python with a serial number 571XX which will put it if my research is correct, a 1966 vintage. I am an idiot for waiting so long!
