Listing this beauty for a buddy of mine and it shore is purty. Lol.

This nickel Python is a very strong 98% with only light handling marks throughout. Finish has no chips, flakes or areas missing. It is definitely a collector, not a shooter. Sadly there are no box or papers. Grips are equally as nice, showing minimal effects of handling after 32 years as well. This gun is a showstopper, no doubt. Additional pics available upon request.

$1725 shipped to your FFL from mine. I will only accept USPS Money Orders as a form of payment or cash on a FTF transaction in Central KY. Please PM/email with any questions as I will gladly assist. No trades please.

I am 273-0 with 100% positive feedback on eBay if you wish for a reference, under user ID ohhellawolffish.

Thanks in advance for your interest.

Somebody PLEASE buy this thing before I have any more time to think about it...

When you say "light handling marks throughout", what do you mean by that? Are there many swirls in the finish or is it more mirror like?

Thank You,

Russ

Hi Russ,

First off, thanks for your interest!

The finish is indeed mirror-like (you could successfully shave in it, lol) and there are no swirl marks to be found. The nickel is all factory original and the handling marks are what I would define as spots in the finish that are indicative of those that could easily have come from the factory, not those that have occurred by abuse or neglect.

It is a true "mint" piece that is worthy of any collection.

Gimme a shout if I can be of further assistance. Always glad to help out!

I was able to reach him and the gun did arrive about 7 days ago, but it turns out that it was reported stolen back in 2010. No one to blame that I've been dealing with. As I understand it. Not all States require firearms to be logged in. So I suppose this will happen from time to time.

All involved are making the right and honorable choices. And the State Police now have a real nice Nickel Python...to return to the rightful owner I assume.

this should work like dominoes , chain to first purchaser of stolen gun, they would eat it. might not be easy but that is how it should play out. IMOP
