Saw a very nice blued 1958 Python that was damn near 100% if there ever was. Very nice gun with some kind of imitation ivory grips that had been scrimshawed to hell with some kinda design and some initials. I bet the gun would have looked good with the stock Walnut grips. Or some real Ivory grips.

He paid a high price for it and another Python, both of whom belonged to a well-known veteran Texas lawman who passed away and his kin sold his custom guns.

I say custom guns because the triggers were supposedly worked on by a legendary Texas gunsmith who knew Colt revolvers. He's long gone as well, but his name and work remain a near legend in terms of finding one of the guns he worked on for law officers in the latter part of the last century.

Remind me again why Colt doesn't make the Python anymore?
