I do want a 1950s Python. Got one of those?
I have one. While they are nice and quite collectable, they really are no better than most Pythons of later production, with some exceptions I'm sure. Actually, I think the '70's - '90's bluing is a tad glossier.

Anyone who has never handled a Python - compare them side by side to a Ruger Security-Six - the quality is night and day. I'm not taking away anything from the Security Six - it's a rugged, reliable handgun. But, the action, trigger, fit and finish are not comparable. With a Python, you are paying as much for what is inside the gun as you are fit and finish on the Python's exterior.
