    Where I am currently at, there are restrictions to where I can go on the web. I do not have a way to lookup auctions for pricing on:

    1 ea, Colt Python, .357 Magnum, Some "cold bluing" on barrel, action tight, good bores.

    1 ea, John Inglis Hi-Power, pits in frame under grips, not pretty but functional.

    Thanks.

    There's a beautiful 4" python on gunbroker for $1775 "Buy Now." That looks like the cheapest in blue.

    Not sure about the Hi Power. I'm seeing a FN Hi Power in "ehh" condition for $549 "Buy Now." Or a Browning in what looks to be 90% for $779.99. I'm not familiar with the John Inglis model?

    Sorry if this isn't helpful.

    Colt Python's are going for anywhere from $1200 to over $2000.00.

    I know they are probably going for more, but having owned an Inglis -- a nice gun but more roughly finished than a Browning -- I wouldn't pay more than $350.00 for one; $400.00 if it were in really nice condition.

    I'd pass on the Python. Better deals to be had at that price. Sounds like a $1200 gun to me.

    Probably about right for the Python, but I would not pay that much. WAY out of line for the Inglis Hi-Power

    Save your money and keep looking. There are better deals to be had. Not easy but out out there.

    The Pythons in blue 95-98% condition (production years 1970-1996) have sold at recent auctions in my area in the $1,200 to $1,500 range. Those produced in 1955-1969 in 95-98% condition normally sell in the $1,400-$1,700 range. I did see a 3" Combat Python LNIB sell to a local gun collector for $2,500 but was to complete his Python collection. One must also add to to their winning bid a 15% buyers fee and a 6% sales tax.

    Rest assured gun prices will continue to decline as ammo has in recent weeks

    An Inglis with the correct stock and adjustable rear sight can go for a high price. The stocks must have the correct Canadian marking to be legal. A correctly marked Inglis stock allows the pistol to be owned without SBR designation. After market stocks result in the Inglis being a Class 3 weapon.
    These stocks are rare prices increase significantly with the correct stock.:)

    Thanks everyone.
    I'm passing
    (Or this may be a good time to pawn off the Springfield 1903 that has a low serial number)

    The Inglis I used to own had crappy fixed sights and no stock. I paid less than $200.00 for it when I had my FFL through some sort of surplus sale.

    Of course, this was over 15 years ago.
