Reblued Colt Python value
I'm currently in the market for a 6" Blued Colt Python, pre-elite era.
I was about to have a deal with someone when the seller realized after showing the gun to a gunsmith that it had been refinished (looks 99%). The seller is not the first owner, doesn't have the box or papers, doesn't know when the gun was manufactured yet (he emailed Colt). The grips with the gold medallion look to be in pristine condition. What do you think would be a fair price based on my description? I know it's missing a few crucial details like who refinished it and when was the gun built. Let's assume it's a 1980 production and give me a price estimate based on if it was refinished by Colt or not.
PS: does Colt keep track of serial numbers of guns that come in for refinishing etc?
Remember this when you support the labeling and tracking of people and the complete digital takeover of commerce:
"It causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand of the forehead so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name" Revelations
"So you say your prayers and you thank the lord, for that peace maker in the dresser drawer"
