This just in... new Colt Python (to me at least)

This Python just arrived and YES it's going to be staying in the collection.
It's 1 of only 200 made in 1980 for the Minneapolis Police department. Custom shop box & custom shop target stocks (some kind of dark wood). Unfluted cylinder as well. I never saw one before, so I had to buy it.

Nice gun... enjoy. (I'm too cheap to buy a gun that I wouldn't shoot, but it sure would be nice to have a few collector's pieces.)

Stunning!
Where do you come up with these Jeff?
Good to see you at TFL, We've had a brief exchange over at THR about your insane flamed python although I was under a different name. Know you from the Colt forum too.
For those that don't know Jeff, he is probably the Ultimate Collector of Colt revolvers, if they made it, he probably has one or two or three hehe.

Cheers!
