Okay. that's it. I want one. I'm getting one

Yesterday I was in a local gunstore and there was a very nice widow getting her late husband's firearms appraised. Among the collection was a beautiful Python with a 6" barrel manufactured in 1958. It still had the original 1st generation wooden grips and that amazing Royal Blue finish. She let me take a look at it. It's balance was great and it's timing was still terrific. It was appraised at $1,700. Okay that was the clincher. I'm going to exert self-discipline and start saving up for a Python. If that means $1,500 - $2,000 than so be it. I'm getting one. And I'm under no illusions about how tough this will be. Especially when I come across a real nice S&W revolver. I can feel the pain already. --Jcordell 00:14, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Good luck, mate. But, d'you mind if I brag for a moment? This Christmas, my grandfather is giving me his 6" nickel Python :) -SasquatchJim.

I mean this in the best way possible. Shut up. LOL --Jcordell 01:27, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
I wish you luck - I hope you're better at it than I am! - Nyles
Well as of Monday (11/29/10) I saw two Colt Pythons for sale. One at the local Cabelas and another in a locally owned gunshop. Both with 6" barrels and both priced between $1,300 - $1,400 dollars. Like I said it will require some discipline on my part and I don't know if I'll make it, but it's a good goal I guess. --Jcordell 16:36, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

I learned to shoot @ 13 with my dad's 6-inch nickel Python. He still has the original grips and package.

The first gun bigger then a .22 that I ever shot was my uncle's Python with a 2.5 inch barrel. I never really liked the look of snub nosed revolvers, at least compared to longer barreled revolvers, but I loved shooting that thing. It was a lot of kick for a prepubescent kid, though. Still, if you get the chance to buy one, then you certainly should do so. Acora 06:06, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

An Idea

Guys, could someone please add a short text how to distinguish the Python and the Anaconda, you know, for noobs like me? To me both revolvers look the same, the only difference I can see is the screws' placement above the trigger mechanism. (And of course the nomenclature is different but that can rarely be seen in films and games.) Thanks. - bozitojugg3rn4ut 15:28, 10 August 2011 (CDT)

How to distinguish a Colt Python from a Colt Anaconda

  • The trigger guards are shaped differently, the bottom of the Python's trigger guard is flat, the bottom of the Anaconda's trigger guard slants forward and downward.
  • The Anaconda is noticeably larger overall than the Python (and is almost twice as heavy).
  • The screw placement above the trigger mechanism is different.
  • The griped tip of the ejector rod on the Python is longer than the Anaconda's, the ejector rod itself on the Anaconda's is longer than the Python's.
  • The Anaconda only comes with a Stainless Steel finish, Blued Anacondas do not exist.

Hope this helps. - Mr. Wolf 02:28, 25 August 2011 (CDT)

Plus they have different ammunition types. The Python is 357. Magnum and 38. Special, while the Anaconda is in 44.-The Gunslinger 3 22:04, 28 May 2012 (CDT)

Well, that's a given, but you can't always tell caliber in a movie. Jeddostotle7 19:57, 30 August 2012 (CDT)

Colt Python Elite

What exactly makes it "Elite?" - User:2wingo

Colt said so? Other than that it was just a Python. --Jcordell (talk) 19:22, 5 March 2014 (EST)
