My partner many years ago had a nickel 4" Python when I had my nickel 4" Speed Six. We both had our revolvers redone action wise and some "enhancements" by the gunsmith for the local gun collector's guild. I always wanted a Python after I saw his and had a chance to shoot it, but didn't get one. I'll always regret that. Now, if you can even come across one, they do go for in the $1200-$2000 range commonly and rarely stay available long. Many seem to prefer the 6" models and the blued ones do have a certain mystique about them over the other finishes. Personally, I'm hoping to be in the position in the forseeable future to be able to afford one in 4" regardless of the finish, though I'd prefer blue also. It would be a really nice companion to my blued Model 19 4".
