Colt Python .357 Magnum 2.5" Electroless Nickel LNIB!
Here is a rather scarce one for all of you Colt revolver fanatics & collectors!
‘Dirty Harry’ is very happy to offer you this absolutely gorgeous Colt Python .357 Magnum 2.5” snub-nose pistol, finished in the rare factory E-Nickel (electroless nickel) finish! These pistols rarely pop up, especially examples that are 100% complete in their factory original packaging. This one is an early release, and was most likely manufactured in late 1981, as 1982 was the first year that this variation was officially cataloged as Model I3820. Features include a white outline adjustable rear sight, ramp front sight w/ red insert, and black rubber Pachmayr grips w/ gold Colt medallions.
Overall condition is rated @ 98+%-99%, mainly due to the fact that it has been fired, though very infrequently. The factory original E-Nickel finish shows very little wear, and would be considered to be in excellent condition throughout. The factory original Pachmayr grips are in mint condition w/ no significant wear whatsoever. All mechanical functions appear to be perfect, w/ tight lockup, accurate timing, and minty barrel & cylinder bores.
The package includes the factory original woodgrain sleeve w/ the original serial numbered label, the factory original foam-insert, and all of the original Colt paperwork including the hang tag, all of which are in outstanding condition.
These Colt Python .357 Magnum 2.5” Electroless Nickel revolvers are highly collectible and are sought after by Colt collectors worldwide. If you have never had the chance to add one to your high-end Colt collection, now is your chance!
