"Bucket List" Ultimate Zoot Revolver

(1/3) > >>

PJ Hardtack:
I just acquired a 4" Colt Python in immaculate condition for slightly more than half of what it would have cost had it been a 6" model? Colt says it was made in 1991.

Why? Because in Kanuckistan, any gun with a 4" barrel or less is a "prohib" meaning you have to have a 12(6) "grandfathering" licence to own it. I do, but most do not., so it was a sleeper on the market.

Can't wait for it to arrive. Yes, I will shoot it as there is no market for "prohibs" in Canada.

Excellent!  I paid $600 for my 8" nickle model 20 yrs ago.  We await pics!

Great guns, I've had deals set up for two different Pythons over the years, neither happened.  The first was in 1975, a 4" for $200, bum agreed to a to a pay day purchase, he had sold it (for more money) when I showed up on pay day with cash in hand.  Second was about 6 or 7 years ago, had a deal on a 6" for $1000, had the money in my pocket and the gun in my hand when the seller decided he just couldn't part with his baby.  I think he still owns it to this day, I can respect that.  Between the two deals I had a Smlot (or Smython) made for me with a 3" Python barrel on a round butt S&W M19 by a great pistol smith.  Not many of them in this world, real fine gun.  Gunsmith still advertises them as one of his signature creations today, I think mine was his first.

Now the bad news, Zoot guns had to be in production by 1949, Colt didn't start selling the Python until 1955.  Still a great gun, enjoy your new baby.

I had a 6" blued Python in the mid-60s. Sold it to buy my first parachute for free-falling.

Tried to buy it back and the guy refused. Been wanting to replace it ever since.

Sold a blue 4" Python when I got married to pay some bills. It was a fine shooter.
