More pics of my Snubbie

I rec'd my 1963 2.5" Python today. I promised more pictures so here they are. The craftsmanship on this one is noticeable better than my 77 and 79 versions. I had heard the early ones were better, now I see the difference in person.

Thanks for looking guys. It really is a nice Python. I have two others but the finish on the early sixties models are top notch for sure.

I get the impression that you are not very happy with this purchase.

Tell us how you really feel.

jgl, I have bought a good many guns in the last two years, but have never been more pleased than with this one. Its true it cost more than any other I have bought but it was a very satisfying purchase.

Nothing like getting the gun that you really want. I understand getting "the" gun. I have a nickel Model 19 that replaced a long lost "first" gun. I paid a bit more than I should have and I'll never, ever, sell it.

These pictures make your Python look better than the first set did.

Have you shot it yet? I was amazed how well the short Pythons handled the 357 loads.

RonR6, I paid the market price. I was watching 5 different ones on GB and they averaged just over 2300 bucks. So I was satisfied. I would have liked to have gotten a better deal, but the deals are quickly disappearing.

Niant, yes it will be gently shot. It is not perfect and I have no box or paperwork. It has been shot before. Rest assured it will be babied though!

Well that is a little more than I thought it would have cost, but like you said the supply of them is limited and you are very lucky to have found one. I have a Colt Diamondback and a Trooper, I always wanted a older Python but just never purchased one. Good luck with your new toy.

RonR6, Of the ones that I was following on GB and actually sold. 2300 and change was the average of 5-6 guns. Nothing lower than 1800.

That is a beautiful gun! The only thing it needs is a Tyler T-grip.
