        I assumed you were bidding for a Nu-Python, but since you're going for an old one then expect the prices to be higher because Boomers have infinite money

          Sorry. Should've mentioned it since not everyone is comparing from memory. A sure way to tell, is the lack of extra screws/pins (present on the new) on the side of the frame.

        New Python has an MSRP of like $1500, so try to get under that. Quality of the new Pythons is ok, but they're not nearly as fine as the old original ones. On the other hand, they're not nearly as delicate and fragile either.

        Just looked up the serial number. It's from '72

        Exact same. 1972

        Alright, so you're looking to spend well north of $2000
        Don't go shoot any Buffalo Bore ammo in the thing.

          Is this really a big concern with the older ones? I know they probably more fragrile compared to a modern 357, but is it really something to worry about?

            You're gonna beat the shit out of the lockwork with lots of hot ammo, especially in double-action. The thing was originally intended to be a .38 Special target gun and ended up being changed to .357 Magnum really late in development.

        That's one of the more common configurations. I'd expect it would probably sell for about $2.5k. It might go a little higher if it has the box, papers, etc.

    Yeah, they are worth it. Colt is owned by CZ now, who knows what will happen in the future. It's a nice fine piece of history and a collector's item. You could find old used pythons for that price range, but the problem is that would be a low ball range for an old python, meaning you'll get used and abused ones. Safer bet is to just get the new remake, unless you want to spend $2k+ and get a nice old one.

    I'm at an impasse when it comes to which modern revolver I want. I like the aesthetic of the S&W 629, but I hate the cuck lock on it. I like the affordability of any of the Ruger revolvers, but I think they all look ugly as sin. And finally, I like the look and history of the Colt Anaconda, but I've heard of the new production Colt revolvers having QC and reliability issues.

            Only fear the bid that exceeds your maximum. That said, more bidding only drives it up. Also, as stated itt, add on a coula hun to your max for tax and shipping. My last rifle was well below my max, but nearly at it with same. My FFL is at $40 for xfer.

            Then put your best bid on it and look away. You will be notifed through your acct email addy if you win. Probably if you don't win, too. I've never lost. Just bid your max and fuh gidda bow it. You will only fret your bid will be eclipsed and then get overly competitive and rebid if you don't. Then someone will out bid you, and you won't want to lose, so you will rebid and in tge end, exceed your max and win with regret. But you won't even bid, you will just wait and watch it go higher than the $1375 you don't even have. This whole thread was just wishful thinking and I am now going to search GB, GI anf AA for Pythons and bid $1500 just to spite you. Op is a poorfag loser.

      Anonymous

      I'd personally never consider a nu-Colt revolver, their quality dropped hard back when they first discontinued the Python in 2000. At that time they laid off most of their skilled workers and they have never recovered from that. The new Python model looks like the old one but it no longer has that super smooth (albeit delicate) lockwork the original had so a lot of the appeal is gone as well.
      Rugers are tough as hell. I don't own a standard Redhawk but I have a Blackhawk in .357 I inherited from my father and I have a Super Redhawk in .454 which has been my innawoods sidearm for over 20 years and I've taken a lot of deer with. The other anon said it well, Rugers have little finesse but are built tough as hell. A S&W 686 is more like a sports car compared to the Ruger's pickup truck, better ergos and trigger, most people think they look better, but the Ruger is the more durable of the two.

        Thank you, fren. A lot of people dump on Ruger bc of Bill and "market strategy" (politics). Truth be told at a time when the gun market was stressed he kept his one-man-show alive and put AFFORDABLE guns in the hands of a lot of Americans! I personally don't care much for his P-series, but have a couple MK IIs, a SRK and a Bearcat. Cute lil' pc. And I wouldn't mind a RAR youth in .308 or .260 for a poorfag UL mountain gun. Mostly the revolvers though, their advantage is affordability.

            I love Ruger, but there's been some sloppy production in the old days. One of the contributing reasons for the original Mini-14's poor accuracy was because stock bedding was often really fucking bad. Bill also didn't feel like replacing worn out tooling for the Mini-14's production line, which lead to some rough parts.
            He did a lot, he came up with a lot of cool things, but he really had some very shitty sides to him and the company was vastly improved after his passing, when guys like Michael O'Fiefer took charge in his place.

            lmao no it fucking wouldn't, Bill Ruger thought that but it's complete bunk, the M16 is a better performing rifle than the Mini-14, particularly the Mini-14 as produced when he was still alive, and the Mini-14 didn't hit the market until almost two decades after those trials were already concluded, by which point the even better M16A1 had been in service for 10 years already.

            The M16 also already beat the Winchester Model 224 Light Rifle, which was very similar to the later Mini-14. It's a complete cope on his part.

        It'a the other way around in here in Denmark. Blue ones are relatively easy to come by, so you'll be paying extra for stainless

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          Interesting.
          The reason the Stainless models tend to sell for less in the US is because the new model Pythons are available in stainless whereas only the originals were blued. So if you want a blue gun an original is your only choice but if you want a stainless one then you've got both new and originals to consider.

          As a side note, the first time I ever fired real guns was with a family friend in Denmark back in the early 1990's. He was a serious collector with a huge variety of miltary stuff, including a 50mm bore cannon that he'd take out and fire off for new years eve, etc. The three guns he took out shooting with myself and my father were a Python, an original Sharps rifle, and an old Danish muzzleloader of roughly .75 caliber. So Pythons have always had a strange association with Denmark for me.
