    1968 Python

    Probably my favorite handgun of all time. The Ivory is pre-ban elephant done by David Boone.

    There is something about ivory and blued steel....it's like they are made for each other.

    I love guns that look like what a gun is supposed to look like. So how does it shoot, got any targets for it?

    Very nice revolver and bluing is some of the worlds best. I understand in the 1960s, Colt's bluing was second to none.
    Yours shows it
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    I have shot it, it was unfired when I got it and figured it would be a shame if I never gave it a test drive. I love it. I also have a Colt Officers Target .38 that is a very fun gun to shoot. I will post pics of it soon.

    My 4" Python is also of '68 vintage. IMHO, they amply illustrate the old addage "quality is remembered long after price is forgotten." I bought my first Python in the Marine Corps in 1964 and as I recall, price was right around $110 ( which was a lot for a young corporal ) and I've loved them ever since. Good luck with it!
