    Time is getting near to make some “big boy” decisions and buy a house, with that being said, I am considering letting a couple firearms go.

    Curious as to the general opinion of value on this 4” python. It was a actual Chicago PD officers carry gun for 20+ years and I purchased it from him. He had bobbed the hammer per department rules but I sent it to Frank Glenn to have it replaced and have the revolver checked out, it’s good to go. I still have the original hammer. No box/papers. Original grips. Muzzle wear and some pitting evident as this saw all weather and was not as rare back then as they are now.

    I have a number in my head, probably too much but at least with this one it’ll work when you pull the trigger and does not have QC issues.

    What say y’all?

    If it weren't a Python, one could say it's a Shooter, not a Collector. But it's a Python.

    Whatever it's worth, I prolly can't afford it. :(
