I got one in "fair" condition for $350 back in October. I didn't like it as much as a S&W. something about the grip angle I think.

Pythons have slowed down in popularity recently. They were a "gotta-have" up until a few years ago, but now the demand has tapered off. They are not selling locally anymore. They tend to be more showpieces at the local shows.

I love mine, but they don't get shot. I've found that a S&W Performance Center revolver is just almost as nice while being cheaper and you don't worry about hurting the value by shooting it.

Colt Pythons have the cult staus that S&W Model 29's had when Clint Eastwood first starred as "Dirty Harry." Even though the Python is not being produced, I've seen prices start to noticeably decline.

I dont think i would call it cult or faddish status since they have been collectable since they were introduced.

The model 29 was a fad because of dirty harry and a short lived one at that. SW couldnt sell em if they were giving them away until one hit the big screen in harry callhan's holster...

The python has been in demand for over 40 years now while it was in production and since production has ceased.

What we have seen lately are the gunshow pawnstore storage wars types trying to sell them for very inflated prices. Demand is there just not at crazy made for tv pricing

I like the Python, and have had an eye open for one, but a lot of the cars I have purchased have been way less then $1700. It is a great gun, but there are new ones out there that are less that are as good. IMO.

Once you go PYTHON you never go back. I was lucky to get mine years ago, so it didnt hurt the wallet too mucho. Colt guns always have big price tags. I would like to get a Diamondback 22, and a Anaconda to accompany my Python, but I dont want to tap my kids college fund. $$$
