It is extemely difficult for an inexperienced and ill-equiped person like me to get a good photograph of the mirror-like finish on these guns. I have promised myself that the next one of these guns will take a trip to a professional photographer.
The Colt Python is a .357 Magnum caliber revolver manufactured by Colt's Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut. The Colt Python is considered to be a premium American pistol. Along with the Colt Peacemaker it is considered to be one of the finest revolvers ever made by Colt. The Colt Python is a double action, large I-frame handgun chambered for the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge. Pythons have a reputation for superior fit & finish, accuracy, smooth trigger pull and a tight cylinder lock-up.
This gun had the Scott imitation mother-of-pearl grips when I bought it.
