Re: Where\'s she gonna stop (Python Price)

Is it fried or unfried? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Last picture shows something to think about. The round plate (what's the right word for this part?) seems to have lost it's blueing completely?
Now I looked at my Python which is a shooter and I do have some blueing on it left and the usual star.

So I ask you? Fired or unfired?

That's the recoil shield.
It's not unusual to see new Colt's with the recoil shield bright and un-blued.

Okay, that's something new to me, I thought that all exterior parts were blued.

I have a couple blue Pythons and they're all polished and unblued at the inner cylinder latch area.

Re: Where\'s she gonna stop (Python Price)

Just out of curiousity, as I don't collect the Pythons, does the edges of the frame as shown in some of the photos appear to be rounded? Also, the Colt Horse seems to have had the front legs polished out??? It's hard for me to tell with the photos like they are... Anyone else think this may have been polished??? Bob Best

Not sure about the frame edges but the colt seems to be thinned. Really hard to tell from the photos but I agree the legs look polished out a bit.

side note, he put x`s in the serial number in the discription, but the box has the complete serial number on it.

It amazes me what people will pay for a refinished gun.

There's a very recent post about this particular seller on the S&W forum. Not favorable.

Re: Where\'s she gonna stop (Python Price)

All, take another look at that gun and the final price. Would a un-refinished gun sell for less money? Absolutly yes. Buyers get too caught up to pay any price for "a nothing gun". Why did THIS gun generate all THIS interest? Are buyers that uneducated? The sight of this gun makes me sick.
