My friends have always been surprised when I pull the ivory or pearl grips and put the wood on and say here shoot my old 1962 Python. It gets fired more than any other revolver I own. Why? Because in the past, it has been an opportunity to give a friend a chance to shoot a gun they may never have again. Over the years, I have to say that I've gotten more enjoyment out of watching others shoot this old gun, than shooting it myself.
Formulated with carnauba and beeswax, the Flitz rifle gun and knife wax makes it easy to keep your gun, knife or sword looking new. This is nonabrasive, solvent-free, no buildup and will not attract dust or wash off in the rain.
Polishes and protects against fingerprints, powder residue, rust, blood, water spots, salt deposits, lime deposits and tree sap. This is safe on gun bluing, polished, plastic and hand-rubbed wood stocks, stainless or nickel firearms and blades, and also safe on interior and exterior of the bore.
Why? Because in the past, it has been an opportunity give a friend a chance to shoot a gun they may never have again. That will likely change now that Colt is bringing the Python back in 2020. Over the years, I have to say that I've gotten more enjoyment out of watching others shoot this old gun, than shooting it myself.
When it comes to cleaning my old guns, I use extreme care in the selection of any product before it gets applied to my gun. I can't stress enough how important the cloth you use on these finishes are.
Use extreme care in cleaning the finish on the Colt Cobra for example. I have seen many examples at gun shows that appear to have thousands of tiny scratch marks from being wiped with the wrong kind of cloth.
Before I use a cloth or product that I have never tried before, I will usually test it on an old pocket knife first.
My old gun has never looked better. And using this wax is so fast and simple. Apply it and wipe it off before it dries. One more time....
There are at least a dozen of my guns that I consider favorites, guns I would not want to part with. I often carry my Cobra, Mustang, Officers Model and Government Model 1911s. I often shoot this Python and my Smith & Wesson K-22s.
The few times I've strapped this gun on to carry, I was persistently aware of its presence. I imagine this 4" Python is the largest and heaviest gun in my collection. I failed to mention that my old 1903 Pocket Hammerless .32 is used every single day. I love that old gun too. One single favorite? I just can't bring myself to single one out.
