Now what 3" is a real things of beauty, not in the least bit jealous..

Lovely to see and thanks for sharing.

Cheerio,

Never mind. This is a complicated researched answer.

There used to be Python barrels available from Colt that weren't on a gun, or takeoffs where someone had a custom barrel made and installed, making the original an extra.
Iím 64, learned to read on dads American Rifleman magazines. I remember articles on Smythons. My friends were Colt fans, me S&W. I dreamed of having a Smython. The word was Colts went out of timing faster than Smiths. The pistols shown here are beautiful. I canít hold a pistol steady enough to know the accuracy difference so Iím going to continue to love my heavy barrel 686 Stocking Dealers Special.

If you are ever in my neighborhood, you can come shoot mine.

I live about a mile and a half from the Colt factory.

I have to say that the thing I have always liked the least about the look of a Python is that vent rib. Looks like it would catch low hanging branches.
