Many thanks to forum members TheCollector, for making the introduction, and Xringchaser, for providing just what I was searching for.
I had been on a quest for the perfect old Python. Everything I was seeing either had too many warts, or was being offered by unrealistic owners.
After a brief introduction, Xringchaser filled the prescription with “just what the doctor ordered”, and it was in my hands in 48 hours. I can’t gush enough praise over the perfect transaction.
1978 4” Python….. practically new in the box. It’s stunning in the photos but even more lovely in person.
Oh, and btw….. “Yes, I am going to shoot it!”
That’s why I bought one that has more life left in it, than I do in me.
